USDA Inspection Report: 27 Apr 2012

Code: 04B04
Violation:  316.5

Citation: At approximately 0900 hours while performing sanitation inspection of the coolers, the following noncompliance was observed.   A majority of the marks of inspection on the quarter carcasses of beef in the cooler are  illegible.  Some carcasses have only faint purple ink marks where the  brand  was applied and in others the ink appears to have run making the brand imprint illegible.   There were approximately  ten carcass quarters with illegible brand imprints  in the trailer being loaded for shipping.   This is a noncompliance of 9 CFR 316.5 (f).  Regulatory control action was  taken  and the  truck trailer was tagged U.S. Rejected # B40171216.  Mr. HACCP manager, was notified of the noncompliance and he  re-stamped the carcasses with the inspection legend.  This document serves as written notification that your failure to comply with the regulatory requirements could result in additional regulatory or administrative action.


316.5 (f) Ink used must assure legibility and permanence of the markings and the color of ink shall provide acceptable contrast with the color of the product to which it is applied.
