USDA Inspection Report: 19 Sep 2011
Citation: On September 19, 2011 while performing final inspection I found the following noncompliances. At approximately 1200 hours I inspected a beef carcass and found feces on the flank and also in the inside of the flank. On the top of the rump, there was also a piece of gray material that appeared to be a piece of paint chipping. Both were trimmed, and I immediately showed this to both Mr. and Mr. At approximately 1326 hours while inspecting the last beef carcass at the final inspection, I found that the tail of the carcass had feces on it. I informed the employee and the tail was immediately removed from the carcass. [newline][newline]A previous similar noncompliance (XVH2610081316N) was issued on August 2, 2011, and remains open at this time due to an inadequate response.
310.18(a) Carcasses, organs, and other parts shall be handled in a sanitary manner to prevent contamination with fecal material, urine, bile, hair, dirt, or foreign matter; however, if contamination occurs, it shall be promptly removed in a manner satisfactory to the inspector.
