USDA Inspection Report: 10 Feb 2011

Code: 01C02
Violation: 416.2(b), 416.3(a), 416.4(b)

Citation: On February 10 at approximately 1345 hours, the following non-compliance was bordered: While walking through the carcass cooler, I observed a carcass that was slaughtered earlier in the day that was "railed out" on a rarely used rail. I noticed that along the flank area on one half of the split carcass there was an area approximately 12 inches long by 3 inches wide that was 'peppered" with many small pieces of what appeared to be rail dust. I also observed some of the same on the elbow and neck on the opposite half of carcass. I applied U.S. retained tags #B34755861 and #B34755862 to each half of carcass. I also attached U.S. rejected tag #B34755863 to the cooler entry door. No other animals were slaughtered after that point. I notified Plant Owner Gerald Jones of my findings. He immediately trimmed all contamination from the carcass and had employees clean and grease the rail in the cooler. I observed no other adulterated carcasses in the cooler. All tags were sub sequentially removed and the cooler was released. Past similar non-compliances: 12/13/2010 #0016-2010-17169 01/20/2011 #0002-2011-17169
