California State University, Los Angeles

The most recent inspection report available for California State University is from 10/26/01. This report discusses only violations in the area of IACUCs referring to several projects that do not have sufficient information regarding searches for alternatives to painful procedures. This is listed as a repeat violation. More damning information is contained in a report from 9/29/00. In this inspection report the facility is cited for inadequate veterinary care: "There is still no written program of veterinary care by the attending veterinarian at this facility original correction date was 10/24/99." Other violations are in areas of sanitation, and housekeeping. The report concludes with: "This is a warning that you have had the same alleged violation(s) documented on your last two inspections. You are being given the opportunity to correct these violations only for the purpose of facilitating compliance with the Animal Welfare Act and the regulations and standards. If legal action is initiated against you, all alleged violations may be used as evidence at a formal adjudicatory hearing."

It is somewhat puzzling that the most recent report does not discuss the resolution of violations from the previous inspection in the areas of sanitation and registration. Also, no mention is made of the potential regulatory action discussed in the previous report.
