Class Code 4717

Butter Substitutes Manufacturing

Class code 4717 is used for employees that work within a facility that manufactures butter substitute products such as vegetable margarine. Base oils that may be included within the scope of this classification are cottonseed oil, corn oil, soybean oil, etc. To make the finished product, these oils are taken and combined with milk solids and additives, such as preservatives, salt, and vitamins. Employees working under class code 4717 may be responsible for various portions of the manufacturing process, including blending of ingredients in large mixing vats, pumping of liquids into congealing tanks, using hoppers to transport the product, and operating forming machines. Once the product is completed, duties such as inspecting, weighing, packaging, boxing, and shipping will also need to be performed.

Because this class code is applicable to the hydrogenation of oils, it would also apply to any refining of crude vegetable oil as well as the incidental manufacturing of hydrogen required for hydrogenation.
