Establishment No.: p18414

USDA Inspection Report: 25 Oct 2011

Code: 04B04
Violation: 381.126

Citation: At approximately 0745 hrs, while inspecting the cooler and freezer the following non-compliance was observed.[newline][newline]5 cases of chicken bones were found in the freezer with the slaughter date on the label reading 00000. I informed QC of the findings. Product was retained and tag # B39416944 was applied. A total of 13 cases were later found with out a slaughter date. The establishment uses a lot system which has the date of the calendar year on which the poultry was slaughtered and the time it was packaged. This labeling non-compliance is in violation of 9CFR 381.126. Another 4 pallets of product in the freezer totaling approximately 400 cases were emitting a foul odor. The slaughter date on most of the labels was illegible. The establishment elected to discard the product.[newline][newline]This document serves as written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional regulatory or administrative action.

Regulation:

381.126(a) Either the immediate container or the shipping container of all poultry food products shall be plainly and permanently marked by code or otherwise with the date of packing. If calendar dating is used, it must be accompanied by an explanatory statement, as provided in 381.129(c)(2).
