A canned dough product includes at least one dough product loaded in a lower compartment of a container and at least one additional ingredient provided in an upper compartment, with the upper and lower compartments being spaced by a separator. The dough expands upon proofing in the container, causing the separator to shift and vary the volumes of the compartments. The expanding dough abuts a central region of the separator, causing the separator to flex, engage an inner surface of the container and become fixed in the container, while the lower compartment becomes fluidly sealed from the upper compartment and different pressures are established in the compartments.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
