USDA Inspection Report: 11 Aug 2011

Code: 04B04
Violation: 381.129

Citation: August 11, 2011 16:10 hours While performing a scheduled, 01C02, operational sanitation inspection procedure inside the processing department, I observed employees in the process of deboning and packaging young turkey thighs. Upon examining one finished piece removed from within its immediate container, I discovered that the patella, a bone, was still intact. This same bone was found in each of ten (10) additional pieces I inspected from the same plastic immediate container. Approaching the labeling scale, I noted that labels stating "Boneless Turkey Thighs" were being applied to the shipping containers of this product. I retained nine (9) waxed cardboard cases containing this mislabeled, semi-boneless product, approximately four hundred (400) pounds in total, by affixing the Food Safety and Inspection Service Form 6502-1 #B39718837. These observations constitute a failure to comply with the United States Code of Federal Regulations, Title 9, Chapter III, Animals and Animal Products, Part 381, Poultry Products Inspection Regulations, Section 129. The establishment's QC/HACCP director, Mr. [redacted] was notified verbally of the noncompliance promptly. Federal law requires that establishments utilize product labeling that is neither false nor misleading and accurately reflects the contents it describes and to which it is applied. This document serves as written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements may result in additional regulatory and/or administrative action(s).


381.129(a) No poultry product subject to the Act shall have any false or misleading labeling or any container that is so made, formed, or filled as to be misleading. However, established trade names and other labeling and containers which are not false or misleading and which are approved by the Administrator in the regulations or in specific cases are permitted.
