USDA Inspection Report: 17 Jan 2011

Code: 04B03
Violation:  381.121(c)

Citation: At approximately 0010 hours, while performing an unscheduled 01C02 procedure task in the Processing Cooler I observed the following; in a lot consisting of 20/ 16 oz Chicken Livers packed in plastic containers and individually labeled, 10 containers were randomly selected and individually weighed, and were observed to be below the individual declared net weight of 16 oz (1 lb) by a variance of .01 - .04 lbs (1/8oz - 5/8oz). The calculated Maximum Allowable Variable (MAV) is -6 and the total package error has been determined to be -26.008, which is less than zero for the 10 randomly selected containers weighed in the sample lot. This lot failed to meet the total package error criteria. 20/ 16oz Chicken Livers (20 lbs) (2 cases) retained with US Retained tag #B40 248021. I verbally notified Second Shift Processing Manager, of the non-compliance. This is a failure to meet 9CFR 381.121(c)(6), 9CFR 381.129(a), 9CFR 442.2(a) and 9CFR 442.5. This document serves as written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirement(s) could result in additional regulatory or administrative action.


381.121(c) The statement as it is shown on a label shall not be false or misleading and shall express an accurate statement of the quantity of contents of the container. Reasonable variations caused by loss or gain of moisture during the course of good distribution practices or by unavoidable deviations in good manufacturing practices will be recognized. Variations from stated quantity of contents shall be as provided in section 381.121b of this subchapter. The statement shall not include any term qualifying a unit of weight, measure, or count such as jumbo quart, full gallon, giant quart, when packed, minimum, or words of similar importance except as provided in paragraph (b) of this section.
