without comments

From an Industry Alert:

Inadvertent Addition of New FSS Zones

There were 27 new FSS zones inadvertently added to the July 1, 2016 effective L006 Labeling List as referenced in the Labeling List Changes section of the June 9, 2016 Postal Bulletin (22443). To resolve this action, the newly added zones will be removed from the L006 Labeling List effective August 1, 2016. In addition, mailers may take advantage of the 30-day grace period and opt to continue to use the June 2016 L006 list. Alternately, where the July list has already been implemented, software providers and mail service providers may remove the 27 zones from the list where applicable.

The 27 zones to be removed are as follows: 02360, 02738-39, 02769-70, 02878, 02921, 07021, 07027, 07054, 07059, 07069, 07076, 07410, 07435, 07438, 07460, 07480, 23120, 23691, 64050-54, 64056, and 64058.
