USDA Inspection Report: 17 Nov 2010

Code: 04B04
Violation: 316.1, 316.3

Citation: At 11:45 a.m. while performing an 01C02 the following 04B04 noncompliance was found. There were several packages of Lamb variety meats on a table in the processing room which were being pack in a 30 lb. cardboard master container. The master container had the statement," not for human food" written on the side panel. Upon questioning Mr. [redacted] I was informed that they were able to package this product with the mark of inspection and the safe handling statement even though the product was not for human food. I informed management I was going to check the labeling issue with my supervisor so they immediately placed the product on hold until I received some clarification. A question was put to "ask FSIS" and it was determined that the label could be used if management had label approval and all the ingredients were listed on the label. Management was asked to provide label approval for "Lamb variety meats". No label approval could be found for this specific label therefore this is a violation of 316.1 No brand manufacturer, printer or other person shall cast, print, lithograph,or otherwise make or cause to be made any device containing any official mark or simulation thereof without prior written authority therefore from the Administrator as provided for in part 317 of this subchapter and 316.3 (a) No person shall affix or place, or cause to be affixed or placed, the official inspection legend or any other official mark, or any abbreviation or simulation of any official mark, to or on any product, or container thereof, except under the supervision of a Program employee, or as authorized by part 317. A review of past records revealed that there are no other violations of this nature in the last 90 days. Mr. [redacted] was informed that this NR serves as written notice that your failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional regulatory and/or administrative actions. You are hereby notified of your right to appeal this decision as delineated by 306.5 and/or 381.35 of 9CFR.

Regulation:

316.1 No brand manufacturer, printer or other person shall cast, print, lithograph, or otherwise make or cause to be made any device containing any official mark or simulation thereof without prior written authority therefor from the Administrator as provided for in part 317 of this subchapter.

316.3(a) No person shall affix or place, or cause to be affixed or placed, the official inspection legend or any other official mark, or any abbreviation or simulation of any official mark, to or on any product, or container thereof, except under the supervision of a Program employee, or as authorized by part 317 of this subchapter in connection with the manufacture of containers.
