Dear Ms. Mesman:

We are enclosing a copy of the establishment inspection reports (EIRs) for the inspections conducted at your premises at located at 542 County Road 7, Farwell, Texas 79325, on July 11 - 14, 2016 and August 22 - 23, 2017 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. When the Agency concludes that an inspection is "closed" under 21 CFR 20.64(d)(3), it will release a copy of the EIR to the inspected establishment. This procedure is applicable to EIRs for inspections completed on or after April 1, 1997. For those inspections completed prior to April 1, 1997, a copy of the EIR may still be made available through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

The Agency is working to make its regulatory process and activities more transparent to the regulated industry. Releasing this EIR to you is part of this effort. The copies being provided to you comprise the narrative portion of the reports; it reflects redactions made by the Agency in accordance with the FOIA and Title 21, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 20. This, however, does not preclude you from requesting, and possibly obtaining, any additional information under FOIA.

If there are any questions about the released information, please feel free to contact Chad J. Whitwell, Compliance Officer, at 214-253-5328, or write to:
