Establishment No.: p09965

USDA Inspection Report: 21 Mar 2011

Code: 04B04
Violation: 381.126

Citation: At approximately 0800 hours, I observed 11 boxes of dressed poultry, "Natural Young Geese", in the product cooler. The 11 boxes each contained 5 dressed carcasses for a total weight of about 45 pounds. I reviewed the immediate container of these dressed (slaughtered, defeathered, eviscerated whole birds with the head and feet removed, i.e., a ready-to-cook whole bird) geese and was unable to find either a lot number which was the number of the day of the year the poultry was slaughtered or a coded number. I asked the Mr. [redacted] HACCP Manger, if there was one. He was unable to show me a lot number or code on the immediate container. Mr. [redacted] was verbally notified of the non-compliance. Regulatory control tag, tag number, B34802909, was placed on the 11 boxes. 9CFR 381.126(b) requires the immediate containers of dressed poultry to be marked with a lot number which shall be the number of the day of the year on which the poultry was slaughtered or a coded number.

Regulation:

381.126(b) The immediate container for dressed poultry shall be marked with a lot number which shall be the number of the day of the year on which the poultry was slaughtered or a coded number.
