USDA Inspection Report: 16 Aug 2011

Code: 04804
Violation: 317.5

Citation: Tuesday, August 17, 2011, Spiral Sliced Ham's generic label approval not on file: I performed a General Label task and reviewed the Spiral Sliced Ham label which was being placed on 1/2, hams in the Ready-To-Eat (RTE) department. The hams were pumped with [redacted] brine, but the label approval on file was for [redacted] brine. The establishment did not have a generic label approval for the [redacted] brine on spiral sliced hams. I reviewed the brine formulation sheet and calculated the restricted ingredients and determined that they met all regulatory requirements. [redacted] was verbally notified that a generic label approval had not been completed for a [redacted] brine and that it was a noncompliance. Upon notification of the noncompliance, completed a generic label approval. I reviewed the generic label approva l and found that it met all regulatory requirements. No product was retained.


317.5(a)(1) An official establishment or an establishment certified under a foreign inspection system, in accordance with part 327 of this subchapter, is authorized to use generically approved labeling, as defined in paragraph (b) of this section, without such labeling being submitted for approval to the Food Safety and Inspection Service in Washington or the field, provided the labeling is in accordance with this section and shows all mandatory features in a prominent manner as required in 317.2, and is not otherwise false or misleading in any particular.
