The label bears an orange dot, and the back of the pack has three affixed Velcro dots. In fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from noted space collector Larry McGlynn, a member of the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation's Board of Trustees. In part: "This food package labeled Broccoli Au Gratin was flown on STS-115. The food is contained in a rehydratable package with an injection receptor located at the top of the container to be used to inject hot or cold water into the food. The orange dot was for a member of the crew which was color coded on the menu and the astronaut's food tray. This flown food package was given to me as a gift by members of the STS-115 flight crew."
