I Inspector performed my post-mortem inspection and discovered by observing the teeth (dentition) that the animal had two sets of adult teeth that would indicate that the animal is over thirty months of age. To verify my findings Dr. the SPHV here at Gold Medal Packing looked at the same head and confirmed the age. Gold Medal’s HACCP Plan [redacted]. The prerequisite plan states [redacted]. The bovine passed inspection but because the animal was received into the Plant for slaughter the Plant failed to follow the prerequisite program that Gold Medal Packing (Est. 17965) wrote.
