Address: 81 Cunningham Rd, Indiana PA, 15701
Establishment No.: m09410

USDA Inspection Report: 28 Mar 2012

Code:  04B04
Violation: 317.1, 317.2(b)

Citation: At 06:45 while checking the temperature of the main cooler the following noncompliance was observed. There was one lug of what appeared to be pork trimmings and two lugs of beef bones that had no identification as to whether they were inspected product or retail product. This is a violation of 9CFR317.1 “When in an official establishment, any inspected and passed product is placed in any receptacle or covering constituting an immediate container, there shall be affixed to such container a label….” The lugs were retained with US Retained Tag Nos. B39831497 and B39831484 respectively. [redacted] was notified of this noncompliance. I checked for similar NR’s and found none. This document serves as written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional regulatory or administrative actions. Mr. [redacted] is also advised of his right to appeal this NR as delineated in 9 CFR 306.5.

Regulation:

317.1(a) When, in an official establishment, any inspected and passed product is placed in any receptacle or covering constituting an immediate container, there shall be affixed to such container a label as described in 317.2 except that the following do not have to bear such a label.

317.2(b) Any word, statement, or other information required by this part to appear on the label must be prominently placed thereon with such conspicuousness (as compared with other words, statements, designs, or devices, in the labeling) and in such terms as to render it likely to be read and understood by the ordinary individual under customary conditions of purchase and use. In order to meet this requirement, such information must appear on the principal display panel except as otherwise permitted in this part. Except as provided in 317.7, all words, statements, and other information required by or under authority of the Act to appear on the label or labeling shall appear thereon in the English language: Provided, however, That in the case of products distributed solely in Puerto Rico, Spanish may be substituted for English for all printed matter except the USDA inspection legend.
