65-6a21.Post-mortem inspection of carcasses capable of use as human food; marking or labeling; destruction of adulterated carcasses for food purposes; removal of inspectors for failure to destroy. For the purposes of the Kansas meat and poultry inspection act, the secretary shall cause to be made, by inspectors appointed therefor, a post-mortem examination and inspection of the carcasses and parts thereof of all livestock, domestic rabbits and poultry which are capable of use as human food and which are to be prepared at any slaughtering, canning, salting, packing or similar establishment in this state in which such articles are prepared for intrastate commerce. The carcasses and parts thereof of all such animals found to be not adulterated shall be marked, stamped, tagged or labeled as "inspected and passed." The inspectors shall label, mark, stamp or tag as "inspected and condemned" all carcasses and parts thereof of animals found to be adulterated. All carcasses and parts thereof thus inspected and condemned shall be destroyed for food purposes by the establishment in the presence of an inspector, and the secretary may remove inspectors from any such establishment which fails to so destroy any such condemned carcass or part thereof. After the first inspection and when they deem it necessary, the inspectors shall reinspect such carcasses or parts thereof to determine whether since the first inspection such carcasses or parts thereof have become adulterated. If any carcass or any part thereof, upon examination and inspection subsequent to the first examination and inspection, is found to be adulterated, it shall be destroyed for food purposes by the establishment in the presence of an inspector. The secretary may remove inspectors from any establishment which fails to so destroy any such condemned carcass or part thereof.
