The problem was discovered while the Food Safety and Inspection Service (“FSIS”)  Office of Investigation, Enforcement and Audits (“OIEA”) conducted its routine food defense surveillance activities.

The Food SIS OIEA investigator discovered the recalled Meat and Poultry Products were being stored under unsanitary conditions, including rodent activity, in the storage areas of the property. FSIS and the establishment detained the remaining product. The items subsequently tested positive for alkaline phosphatase, demonstrating evidence of possible fecal matter.
