The Missouri Department of Agriculture’s Meat and Poultry Inspection Program announced today that operations have resumed at the Russellville Locker. The business requested a re-inspection Friday evening, at which time the violations identified July 19 had been addressed.
As a result, the custom exempt processing permissions for the facility were reinstated.
Facilities operating under a custom processing exemption, such as Russellville Locker, are not allowed to sell meat to the public. Custom exempt processing is completed for livestock owners for their own consumption. All custom exempt packaging is specially marked.
