Putting Glass Walls on New York Slaughterhouses So We Can See Behind Closed Doors from FAUN Friends Of Animals United

Address: 504 Stanton Corner Rd, Ferndale, NY 12734
Establishment No.: p19150

USDA Inspection Report: 28 Sep 2010

Code: 04B04
Violation: 317.1

Citation: At 1115 hours on this date Inspection personnel observed that approximately 10 plastic product containers in various states of the processing sequence were stacked upon product racks near the shipping door in the production holding cooler. These plastic containers were marked accordingly for product type but the lids of each plastic container had to be lifted to determine the state of the product. Product that was finished in consumer packages was easily identified but other product placed in plastic containers could not be identified as to the sequence in the processing operation. Was this product destined for further cut up in the 19150P cut up room or was it in the raw state to be shipped for further processing (cooking) in 34701P. I believe that parts of 317.1(a) were not being met which states that "when, in an official establishment, any inspected and passed product is placed in any receptacle or covering constituting an immediate container, there should be affixed to such container a label as described in 317.2. I could not determine easily between the three types of non separated product stored near the shipping door. 1) finished in consumer packages 2) needs further cut up in 19150P 3) raw product not in consumer package destined for further processing in 34701P. 19150P management will be notified upon receipt of this non compliance report.

Regulation:

317.1(a) When, in an official establishment, any inspected and passed product is placed in any receptacle or covering constituting an immediate container, there shall be affixed to such container a label as described in 317.2 except that the following do not have to bear such a label.
