SELECT THE SAMPLES IAW THE INSPECTION DATA PACKET.
Military food inspection personnel are required to select and test samples of
subsistence, which represents a larger quantity that is being shipped or stored. The
number of samples to select will be based on the lot size of the item being inspected.
The lot size for dairy products will be expressed as the number of shipping containers.
Strict random sampling is usually not required, but inspectors should insure they select
their samples from throughout the lot to ensure that what they are examining represents
the entire lot. During surveillance inspections, samples should be drawn so as to be
representative of the lot, but special attention is paid to obtaining some of the sample
units from possible areas of storage stress, such as along warehouse walls, near the
ceiling, close to cooling coils and doors, etc.
a. Sample size for prime vendor inspections will be in accordance with local
standing operating procedure.
b. Sample size for wholesale and retail activities (other than prime vendor) will
be extracted from the Joint Receipt Food Inspection Manual (JRFIM).
c. Sample size for all surveillance inspections is determined IAW AR 40-656 or
the purchasing agency directives.
d. Samples should be selected in the presence of the delivery driver when
DETERMINE IF THE PRODUCT IS FROM AN APPROVED SOURCE.
The destination inspector must determine that the product being offered for
inspection originated from an approved source of supply for military procurement.
There are three important reference documents discussed below that list approved
sources of supply. They are the Interstate Milk Shippers listing (IMSL), the USDA
listing, and VETCOM Circular 40-1. The U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS), the U.S.
Department of Agriculture (USDA), state and local health agencies, the dairy industry,
and the military veterinary service are all involved with ensuring quality dairy products.
a. Verify the products approved source listing or exempt status. (See subcourse
MDO694, Basic Food Inspection Procedures I, for more information concerning
approved source verification)
b. Sources of fluid dairy products may be listed in the Sanitation Compliance
and Enforcement Ratings of Interstate Milk Shippers List (IMS List). This publication is
