Address: 6845 N. Slocum Rd, Ontario, NY 14519
Establishment No.: m4253

USDA Inspection Report: 19 Jun 2012

Code: 04C02
Violation: 313.16

Citation: At approximately 1025 I heard 2 gunshots go off on the slaughter floor. The second shot did come immediately after the first. I proceeded to go back to the slaughter floor and review the shot location on the bovine that was just stunned. I found 2 bullet holes from 2 shots from the 410. I then notified of the non-compliance and he nodded ok.
