USDA Inspection Report: 9 Nov 2011

Code: 04B04
Violation: 312.2, 317.1

Citation: At approximately 23:30 on 11/08/11 while revisiting plant for overtime coverage I took note of [redacted] (night shift supervisor) taking a skid with 5 cases from the trailer. The five cased did not have the any label identifying the product or the mark of inspection showing that the product was inspected. After questioning the supervisor about what the product was and what his intentions were he informed me that the product was pheasants and that he was going to label the product. I ask him to show me the label that he was to apply to this product. The label he show me was a label with Pheasant as the name with the mark of inspection. At this time I informed him that I was retaining the product with a US retain tag. Product was being retained until more information was provided about these five cases of pheasants.
