Address: 1131 Grand St, Brooklyn, NY 11211
Establishment No.: p20138

USDA Inspection Report: 23 Jul 2011

Code: 04B04
Violation: 381.115

Citation: At approximately 0850 hours, SPHV [redacted] found the following noncompliance:
In the packing area, I saw one of the plant employees take birds from the chill tanks and pack approximately 5-8 carcasses directly into two red plastic bags. The plastic bags had no writing on them. I followed the employee to the shipping area where a customer was waiting. The employee handed the customer the two unlabeled red plastic bags of chickens. I immediately retained the product using U.S. Retain Tag #B39794898.
I immediately notified general manger, [redacted] that these red bags were not properly labeled with the establishment’s information. Additionally, Mr. [redacted] informed me that there is no guaranty, or statement of assurance available stating that the packaging material complies with the FFDCA and all applicable food additive regulations.
I returned to the packing area and found approximately 5 more unlabeled red bags with chickens in them. The product was retained using U.S. Retain Tag #B39794897.
This is a noncompliance with 9 CFR 381.144 and 381.115.

Regulation:

381.115 Except as may be authorized in specific cases by the Administrator with respect to shipment of poultry products between official establishments, each shipping container and each immediate container of any inspected and passed poultry product shall at the time it leaves the official establishment bear a label which contains information, and has been approved, in accordance with this subpart.
