Citation: On 10/24/2011 at 2:30pm while inspecting hog carcasses at postmortem inspection area I noticed fecal material in the crotch area on several carcasses. I mentioned this to Kill floor manager, I noticed they were bunging the hogs on the bed before they were burnt, scrubbed and washed. He said they couldn't bung them on the rail because of the hooks they were using made it difficult. At 3:45 pm I placed retained tags B 38 43905 and B 38 439606 on the first and last scalded hogs and retained all the scalded hogs because of fecal matter in the crotch. was notified of the situation.
