Citation: At approximately 1000 hours while performing an unscheduled 04B04, I observed the following noncompliance. While walking through the freezer myself and Dr. [redacted] found (3) three plain brown boxes marked on the label Custom Ground Beef with a inspection legend on the label. The plants' people explained that the contents of the box was for their own personal use. The contents of the box were approximately seven (7) bags of five (5) pound packages. I placed Retain Tag B18902472 and are being retained in the freezer. I informed Mr. [redacted] both orally and with the writing of this document. This noncompliance is linked to record number 0017-2011-17168.
