Where a USDA Grade certificate and corresponding product fails to meet the above requirements, delivery of such product shall be subject to refusal by the Virginia Distribution Center. In a case where the Virginia Distribution Center refuses product because of an unacceptable certificate, the VDC expeditor will contact the vendor immediately.
