USDA Inspection Report: 9 Nov 2010

Code: 04B04
Violation: 317.1, 317.2(b)

Citation: On 10/09/10 at approximately 12:15 while performing PBIS task 04B04, I discovered two items,a large plastic bag containing chicken wings and a plastic tray containing chicken gizzards, in main cooler off loading dock which were not labeled or in any box or container that was labeled. Retain tag number B35199376 was applied to these items. Plant Manager was immediately notified and he took immediate action to see items were labeled properly. Retain tags were removed after items were properly labeled. This is a noncompliance with CFR 9 317.1(a) which states in part: When, in an official establishment,any inspected and passed products placed in any receptacle or covering constituting an immediate container,there shall be affixed to suchcontainer a label as described in 317.2(b).


317.1(a) When, in an official establishment, any inspected and passed product is placed in any receptacle or covering constituting an immediate container, there shall be affixed to such container a label as described in 317.2 except that the following do not have to bear such a label.

317.2(b) Any word, statement, or other information required by this part to appear on the label must be prominently placed thereon with such conspicuousness (as compared with other words, statements, designs, or devices, in the labeling) and in such terms as to render it likely to be read and understood by the ordinary individual under customary conditions of purchase and use. In order to meet this requirement, such information must appear on the principal display panel except as otherwise permitted in this part. Except as provided in 317.7, 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.
