Address: 10 Edgar Ave, Aquebogue, NY 11931
Establishment No.: 00824 P
USDA Inspection Report: 19 Aug 2010
Violation: 381.126, 381.129
Citation: On August 19, 2010 at 1445 while checking the production date on the boxes I observed that the product code date is 8462,(which is February 24, 2010) when in fact it should be 8562 (August 19, 2010) that is today's date. The Julian date is on the package which is 231,but it does not state the year, so the 231 could be seen as last years Julian date 231. The packing date is misleading. Mr. and Mr. were informed immediately. A regulatory control action was initiated to restrict use of the 700 boxes until corrective action could be performed (Tag # B 39133809). The Regulations in Section 381.126 state " Date of packing and date of processing (a) Either the immediate container or the shipping container of all poultry food products shall be plainly and permanently marked by code or otherwise with the date of packing." The Regulations in Section 381.129(a) state " No poultry product subject to the Act shall have any false or misleading labeling." The Regulations in Section 381.126 and 381.129 have not been met.
381.126 (a) Either the immediate container or the shipping container of all poultry food products shall be plainly and permanently marked by code or otherwise with the date of packing. If calendar dating is used, it must be accompanied by an explanatory statement, as provided in §381.129(c)(2).
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.
