FSIS NOTICE 01-07 1/8/07

DOCUMENTATION RELATED TO SPECIFIED RISK MATERIALS (SRMs)
AND OTHER REGULATIONS

This notice clarifies how inspection program personnel are to document regulatory noncompliance related to 9 CFR 310.22 for controlling specified risk materials, as well as other regulations

Inspection program personnel are to cite 9 CFR 310.22 in the Relevant Regulation section of every noncompliance report (NR) for an establishment that does not meet the regulatory requirements for controlling SRMs. In addition to selecting 9 CFR 310.22, inspection program personnel are to select all other regulations with which there has been noncompliance.

For example, while performing the 03C02 procedure, the Inspector-in-Charge (IIC) sees spinal cord material on previously cut T-bone steaks that had passed the Critical Control Point (CCP). The IIC cites 9 CFR 417.2(c)(4) and 310.22(b) in the Relevant Regulations section on the Procedure Results NR screen. The IIC notifies the appropriate establishment official of the finding. The IIC also verifies that the corrective actions implemented by the establishment meet the requirements of 9 CFR 417.3(a) before issuing the NR.

Inspection program personnel are to describe the noncompliances in the Narrative Section, block 10, of the NR. The narrative should include a complete description of the SRM noncompliance, including the type of SRM and any other information relevant to the noncompliance. The narrative should also address each of the other regulations that inspection program personnel cite in the Relevant Regulations section on the NR screen. The statements in block 10 of the NR are to support completely and adequately the regulatory noncompliances cited.

For every NR that inspection program personnel issue, it is important that they cite all relevant regulations. These citations provide data that are the basis for critical, risk-based decisions that the FSIS must regularly make when working to ensure that meat and poultry products are safe. Thus, it is not appropriate for inspection program personnel to cite only one regulation if other regulations are also violated by the noncompliance that is the subject of the NR.

Inspection program personnel with technical questions related to the use of PBIS, or who experience technical problems, should contact the FAIM Help Desk at 1-800-473-9135. They should contact the Technical Service Center at 1-800-233-3935 for policy-related questions.

SOooo, it's Monday Jan. 8, 2007, in 2006 ALONE, the FDA allowed literally 100s of 1,000s of TONS of ruminant protein to be fed to not only USA cattle and livestock, but it also exported this poison to other parts of the globe as well, and the FSIS is just NOW clarifying how it's inspectors handle SRMs ??? and no SRMs are being fed to cattle in the USA ??? God help us.


LIKE i said,


IT'S as obvious as day and night, either Larry, Curley, and Mo have been at the helm of the
USDA/APHIS/FSIS/FDA/CDC/NIH et al for many many years, or the incompetence
of these agencies are so inept, either through ignorance and or just too overweight with industry reps.,
they then should be all done away with and a single agency brought forth, and if not, how will you
correct this ongoing problem ?
