USDA Inspection Report: 13 Aug 2010

Code: 04B04
Violation: 381.116

Citation: At approximately 0924 hours, while performing the 04B04 ISP procedure in the main cooler, I observed two forty pound boxes of product stacked on top of other product with no identified label or marking on the products. Upon further examination, the two boxes of product contain poultry drumsticks. I immediately retained the tow boxes of poultry drumsticks with US Retained Tags B39 801321 and B39 801322. While informing (Quality Assurance) of my observation, we observed one box of product on a wooden pallet with no identified label or marking on the box. The box of product contains two ten pound bags of poultry buffalo parts. Quality Assurance retained the box with buffalo parts with QA Retained Tag. I informed (2nd Processing Superintendent) of my observation. All product retained were condemned by established. After a review of the plant records for the Shipping Department, no deficiencies were documented for unmark product. I discussed verbally with plant management on my concern with product being identified in the stored cooler prior to shipping during the USDA/Plant Management weekly meetings. This document serves as a written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirement could result in additional enforcement action described in 9 CFR part 500.

Regulation:

Except as provided in 381.128, all words, statements and other information required by or under authority of the Act to appear on the label or labeling shall appear thereon in the English language: Provided, however, That in the case of products distributed solely in Puerto Rico, Spanish may be substituted for English for all printed matter except the USDA inspection legend.
