This is a letter received from the Cannery:
Brothers & Sisters:
You will find attached the June Schedule for Family Canning at the Idaho Falls ID Cannery.
I thought I would give you an update as to where we are at in regards to canning any meat products, as most of you are aware we have not done since last year. It has been determined that we will not be able to offer any Family Canning of any Meat Products, which is the Chicken Chucks, Chili, Beef Stew, etc.
There may still be hope. We are looking into the possibility of becoming a USDA Certified Facility. If we are successful in accomplishing this, we would be able to offer these products. Given our present welfare canning schedule, it would probably not happen until towards the end of the year. We will keep you informed as to our progress.
PS: We will only be sending out the Family Canning Schedules via e-mail. If you have friends, family, etc that would like to get on our e-mail list and receive any future notification, please have them e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and request to be put on our e-mail list. Please have them include their name along with their e-mail address.
