The U.S. Department of Agriculture has revised its inspection standards for almonds in the shell.

Instead of counting individual defects in each almond sample, inspectors will now weigh defective almonds found within given samples, according to a USDA news release.

The new method will harmonize procedures for incoming and outgoing inspections, ensuring consistency, according to the release.

The change in method was recommended by the Modesto-based Almond Board of California.

The notice of the change was published in the March 8 Federal Register.
