A survey was made of all of the pallet units with the cases being noted in good condition but with frost on the outside of some of the cases and with frost noted on the inside of the plastic stretchwrap on all of the pallet units. Cases were chosen at random from pallet numbers 6198266, 6198232, 6198176 and 6198154 for inspection of the product. The pork patties are packaged in a plastic bag with the top folded closed inside the fibreboard cartons. The following condition were noted to all of the samples that were inspected. Heavy frost was noted on the inside of the plastic bags and on the outside of all of the port patties. Discoloration of the port patties was also noted and in all cases the pork patties were frozen into blocks instead of being IQF. In one of the cases the entire contents of the case was frozen into a solid block. Some of the pork patties had taken on an oval shape while other were noted to be round. The conditions noted are consistent with thawing and refreezing. While the wholesomeness of the product could not be determined the shelf life of the product has been compromised as noted by the discoloration and mis-shaped patties. At time of our survey the product pulp temperature was recorded to be +2.1 to + 2.2 degrees F.

This lot of Pork Patties was involved in an insurance claim and is being sold by the insurance company to recover funds from loss.
********** Addtl Details on Export Requirements- Comment from supplier why these Pork Patties cannot be sold in the U.S.: "there were three specific deviations from USDA guidelines that prevent this product from being sold domestically: Two were labeling deviations, but the main one is a processing deviation – that one is the reason that we cannot bring this back into compliance for a seconds customer:
• Per USDA Standards and Labeling Policy Book, “Caramel Color” may not be added to the formulation of a raw product.
1) The “Caramel Color” ingredient is labeled as “Caramelized Sugar Syrup” because we had to match the existing ingredient statement – this required USDA approval.
2) The product name should actually be “Pork and Textured Soy Protein Patty”, due to the ratio of Meat to Textured Soy Protein in the formula.
a. Per USDA Standards and Labeling Policy Book, If the ratio of Meat to Textured Vegetable Protein is < 10:1, then the Textured Vegetable Protein must be part of the product name. This product’s ratio was 7:1. Again, since we were matching the existing product, we had to get approval for this deviation.”
