Citation: At approximately 0743 hours, while performing ISP task 04C04 AQL on the giblets to insure that the establishment was meeting the Ready To Cook requirements for giblets and necks.

I retained the product with US Retain tag # B39801690. Establishment management has received both written and oral notification concerning this noncompliance. Continued failure to meet regulatory requirements could result in additional enforcement action as described by 9 CFR 500
