The Division of Meat Inspection is responsible for regulating 272 meat and poultry establishments statewide. Of those, 197 are fully-inspected facilities and provide slaughtering and processing operations for resale. The remaining 75 establishments operate under a "custom exempt" status and provide a "not-for-sale" service to individuals who wish to have their own animals slaughtered. Meat inspection staff is responsible for verifying that each establishment produces safe, wholesome, and properly labeled products in a sanitary environment.
