USDA Inspection Report: 20 Sep 2011

Code: 04804
Violation: 317.5

Citation: At approximately 1330 hou rs, September 20, 2011,General Labeling-generic label approvals not on file: I reviewed 18 different ham label approvals and found that two of the generic label approvals were not accurate.The following noncompliance were noted:  1) The Picnic Ham had a generic approval, dated 7/5/2000, with the pump listed at 18%. The Picnic Ham is actually pumped with a 25% brine. A calculation of the 25% brine revealed that it met all regulatory requirements; therefore, product was not retained. 2) The Ham Steak had a generic approval, dated 6/15/98, with the pump l isted at 25%. The Ham Steak is actually pumped with an 18% brine. A calculation of the 18% brine revealed that it met all regulatory requirements; therefore, product was not retained. [redacted], was visually and verbally notified of the labeling noncompliance. linkage:A similar noncompliance was documented on N R OLE1809082018N/1, dated 8/17/11.

Regulation:
