Update: Leinbach Custom Processing in Versailles to Resume Operations
The Missouri Department of Agriculture's Meat and Poultry Inspection Program announced today that custom exempt processing has been reinstated at Leinbach Custom Processing in Morgan County. The business owner provided documentation of potable water today, February 14, at which time the violations identified earlier this week had been addressed.
As a result, the processing permissions for the facility were reinstated.
Facilities operating under a custom processing exemption, such as Leinbach Custom Processing, are not allowed to sell custom processed meat to the public. Custom exempt processing is completed for hunters and livestock owners for their own consumption. All custom exempt packaging is specially marked.
