Citation: On January 3,2011, I collected and submitted tissue samples from a non formula fed veal calf. The analysis results from the midwestern laboratory were violative. I informed the kill floor supervisor, [redacted] and the production manager, [redacted] of this unforseen hazard. The calf carcass was on "HOLD" by plant management pending sample results and did not enter commerce. The calf was purchased at [redacted] in PA. The producer was [redacted] (BT# 3482). A copy of the lab report provided by LEARN is attached to this NR. This is a violation of CFR 417.3 (b) (1) and 417.3 (b)(2). This document serves as a written notification that your failure to comply with the regulatory requirements could result in additional regulatory or administrative action.
