USDA Inspection Report: 20 Apr 2011

Code: 04B04
Violation:  312.2, 317.1

Citation: On this day, April 20, 2011 at @:2:20 pm, while walking through the coolers, I noticed a gray lug in cooler #3 with approximately 40 lbs of unidentified meat with no label or identification on it. I immediately tagged it with tag # B 30 436430 because the lug was not labeled edible also Dr. found four other grey lugs with no edible label on them, these were retained.. I then notified of the situation. This is a food safety issue because the product has no identification, not the species, or the cut, and not a lot number.
