USDA Inspection Report: 8 Dec 2011

Code: 04B04
Violation: 317.2(j), 317.5, 317.8

Citation: At approximately 0815 hours while performing unscheduled ISP code 04B04 on a batch of Beef and Lamb Donner I observed the following noncompliance. A check of the generically approved label on file, the label that was to be applied to the product, and the ingredients used showed differences in the yogurt component listing. The approved label stated the component of the yogurt was (cultured pasteurized milk, whey protein concentrate, pectin, yogurt culture). The yogurt component breakdown of the label that was to be applied to the product listed (cultured pasteurized milk, pectin). The yogurt component breakdown of the 2 yogurts being used in the formulation was: James Farm yogurt: (cultured pasteurized grade A milk, concentrated skim milk, natamycin ( a natural mold inhibitor). Chobani yogurt: (cultured pasteurized nonfat milk, live and active cultures, S thermophilis, L bulgaricus, L acidophilus, bifidus, L casel). The generically approved label on file was generically approved from label approval # 2546862. The actual sketch approved label was not on file. No affected product was labeled incorrectly. I informed Mr. [redacted] during the formulation of the noncompliance orally and in writing with this NR. This is a violation of FSIS regulations 317.2(j), 317.5, & 317.8.
