Citation: During a review of Records for TriTown Packing Annual Generic Ecoli Sampling I observed no records showing the plant has begun performing these samples. Previous NR dated 06/28/2010 Had Corrective actions of Contacting a new laboratory for sample supplies. As of today(07/16/10) no sampling results have been received by the plant or sampling supplies for collecting and shipping these samples. Mr. was informed of this Non-Compliance, and that failure to perform Generic Ecoli testing as prescribed in the regulations could lead to the shipment of contaminated product. The following Non-Compliance is a failure to follow part 310.25(a) of the regulations and failure to address these issues in a timely manner will result in further regulatory action. Past Similar NRs - Previous Ineffective Plant Actions: Contacting Secondary Lab for samples NR: 8-2010 dated 6/28/2010
