Putting Glass Walls on Pennsylvania Slaughterhouses So We Can See Behind Closed Doors
Nicholas Meats, L.L.C.

Address: 72 Barrville Rd, Belleville, PA 17004
Establishment No.: m4465

USDA Inspection Report: 11 Jul 2011

Code: 04B03
Violation: 317.19

Citation: At approximately 1330 while checking labels I noticed the boxes being filled weighed 2.1 pounds while the scale that was being used to weigh the empty and filled boxes showed on the screen that the Tare Weight was 1.6 pounds. There were 5 filled boxes of "Beef Flats 100%". I retained the 5 boxes with retain tag number 737252. I told the plant manager, who accompanied me to the scale. The computer program that facilitates the labeling of different products had an erroneous Tare Weight for the boxes used for this product. It should have been 2.1 and not 1.6 pounds for the empty boxes. This is a violation of the Net Weight regulations.

Regulation:

317.19 [Reserved]
