USDA Inspection Report: 20 Apr 2011

Code: 04C03
Violation: 310.18

Citation: On 4/20/11 while performing procedure code 04C03 as an unscheduled task I observed the tripe washing and packaging procedures . While observing these procedures I noticed at least 3 pieces of finished omasal tripe in the inedible container with condemned ink on them . I informed [redacted] and [redacted] of the incident and took a regulatory control action. Regulatory control actions taken were : 1. placed US Reject tag # B39038402 and # B39038403 on the two tripe tables . 2. Placed US Reject tag#B39038404 and B39038405 on the two finished tripe washers. 3. Placed US Retained tag# B39038401 on 21 boxes of processed and boxed finished tripe . This is a noncompliance with Meat and poultry regulation 9CFR310.18 . There was no indication that this noncompliance was observed by the plant . Failure to control and or eliminate this type of noncompliance could result in further regulatory and or administrative control measures.


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.
