Part 2. Slaughterhouses Meat and Poultry Inspection

Condemnation And Appeal

81-9-231. Condemnation and appeal. The inspector at an official establishment shall condemn all diseased or otherwise unfit carcasses and parts of carcasses, including the viscera. The condemned parts must be removed from the slaughtering facilities of the plant in equipment designated for that purpose and must be destroyed for food purposes under the supervision of the inspector. If an establishment wishes to appeal a decision of an inspector as to carcasses or parts of carcasses that have been condemned, the establishment may appeal the decision to the chief or any veterinarian the chief may designate. If the establishment is not satisfied and wishes to make a further appeal, it may submit an appeal to the board, whose decision is final unless the person aggrieved, within 10 days after the date of the decision, appeals to the district court of the district in which the licensed premises are located.
