These producers are and . Residues are addressed in a prerequisite program. For repeat violators, the plan states that "[redacted] ". Previously, the prerequisite program stated that "[redacted]." This wording change was made on 6/25/2010, which incidentally in the cases of both suppliers was after the second violation but before the third. This new approach to residue violators by way of wording, has turned out to be an ineffective method for preventing calves with residues from entering the plant. According to 9 CFR 417.2 (a) Hazard analysis. (1) Every official establishment shall conduct, or have conducted for it, a hazard analysis to determine the food safety hazards reasonably likely to occur in the production process and identify the preventative measures the establishment can apply to control these hazards. The hazard analysis shall include food safety hazards that can occur before, during and after entry into the establishment. A food safety hazard that is reasonably likely to occur is one for which a prudent establishment would establish controls because it historically has occurred, or because there ia a reasonable possibility that it will occur in the particular type of product being processed in ther absence of these controls.
