Establishment No.: m4499
USDA Inspection Report: 2 Nov 2011
Citation: On 11/02/11 in the morning a check of the SRM program for identifying carcasses over 30 months showed that two carcasses in the processing cooler, #'s 596 and 597 were tagged as over 30 months but the SRM log for animals over 30 months of age didn't have these numbers recorded. 595 was the last on 10/27 and 598 was the first on 10/28. These numbers would have fallen on one of these days. Failure to produce accurate records could result in adulterated or unwholesome product being shipped. Past Similar NRs - Previous Ineffective Plant Actions: instruct employees in proper record keeping procedures. NR: 63-2011 dated 9/23/2011
