The Missouri Department of Agriculture's Meat and Poultry Inspection Program has temporarily halted custom exempt processing operations at Aurora Grand Meat Co. of Aurora.

During an inspection on May 9, members of the Missouri Department of Agriculture's Meat and Poultry Inspection Program identified unsanitary conditions within the facility. As a result the custom exempt processing permissions for the facility were suspended. The business' permissions are to remain suspended until the completion of a satisfactory inspection, which will be scheduled at the business owner's request.

Facilities operating under a custom processing exemption, such as Aurora Grand Meat Co., 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.

The Missouri Department of Agriculture and the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services encourage individuals who have recently conducted business with Aurora Grand Meat Co. to carefully examine all items processed by the facility and to contact their local health officials with any food safety-related questions.
