Address: Rt. 706, Wyalusing PA 18853
Establishment No.: m09400

USDA Inspection Report: 1 Apr 2011

Code: 03J02
Violation: 309.1

Citation: At approximately 1625 hours on Thursday March 31, 2011 while performing veterinary dispositions on the dressing floor of Establishment 09400-M, the carcass of a surgery suspect (tag # M-2370914) was presented for post mortem inspection. The documentation accompanying the carcass had not been endorsed by an FSIS public health veterinarian indicating this cow was slaughtered without receiving the required veterinary ante mortem inspection. This is a failure to meet the requirements of 9 CFR 309.1. No post mortem inspection was provided for the carcass or viscera. The carcass was retained with tag # 00328781 and the viscera and head retained with tag # B35199320. On Friday April 1, 2011 the carcass, viscera, and head were FSIS condemned for being slaughtered without receiving ante mortem inspection. FSIS personnel verified the carcass and its parts were rolled purple, cut down, and rendered. This document serves as written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirement(s) could result in additional regulatory or administrative action.


309.1(a) All livestock offered for slaughter in an official establishment shall be examined and inspected on the day of and before slaughter unless, because of unusual circumstances, prior arrangements acceptable to the Administrator have been made in specific cases by the circuit supervisor for such examination and inspection to be made on a different day before slaughter.
