FSIS Inspection Reports for Foster Farms

September 11, 2014

Records provided to NRDC by USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) pursuant to a Freedom of Information Act request filed March 7, 2014. NRDC requested that FSIS provide "any written findings of non-compliance, including but not limited to Notices of Suspension, Notices of Intended Enforcement, and Noncompliance reports, and any additional correspondence, including emails, with Foster Farms related to enforcement, microbiological or residue testing, or food safety concerns" from January 2009 through March 2014. In response, FSIS provided data that includes nearly 500 violations from September 30, 2013 through March 6, 2014, presented in chronological order. The location of each noncompliance report can be determined by the establishment number indexed in FSIS's directory of inspected facilities (http://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/wcm/connect/a5c2b5c8-92e0-4565-8999-f2fb75bfdb05/MPI_Directory_Establishment_Number.pdf?MOD=AJPERES). All data received is published without modification.
