Putting Glass Walls on Kentucky Slaughterhouses So We Can See Behind Closed Doors
The Chop Shop

Address: 126 KY 205N Hazel Green, KY 41332
Establishment No.: m44151

Enforcement Report: October 18, 2013


On October 17, 2013, a “Notice of Suspension” was issued to suspend the assignment of inspectors at The Chop Shop, Est. M44151. This action was based on your establishment’s failure to handle livestock humanely according to 9 CFR Part 313. Your establishment failed to effectively render the animal insensible on the first attempt.

Following the suspension, on October 18, 2013, you provided FSIS with written corrective and preventative measures in an effort to meet the requirements of the Humane Slaughter Act. You spoke with Mr. Donald Coley, DDM regarding your first response and you inquired about the Notice of Suspension letter. Mr. Coley advised that a training log for the stunning process was needed and a copy of your establishment’s written program was requested. On October 18, 2013, you submitted three additonal responses to the Jackson District Office; however, additional information was requested from your establishment, including training records. October 18, 2013, Mr. Don Coley, DDM, notified you telephonically that the corrective and preventative measures were received in the District Office and meet the requirements to place The Chop Shop, Est. M44151 under a “Notice of Suspension Held in Abeyance.” This letter is to formally inform you of this action.
