§ 1.160. Sexual odor of swine.

 (a)  Carcasses of swine which give off a pronounced sexual odor shall be condemned.

 (b)  The meat from carcasses of swine which give off a sexual odor less than pronounced may be passed only for use in cooked comminuted meat food product, or in comminuted meat food product usually eaten without heating, or for rendering. Otherwise, such meat shall be condemned.

 (c)  All carcasses of boars and cryptorchids other than those disposed of under subsections (a) or (b) shall be marked ‘‘Boar’’ at the time of slaughter. Each primal part and bone-in cut from such carcasses, if susceptible of such marking, shall be marked ‘‘Boar’’ prior to being removed from the slaughtering establishment. The immediate container of other bone-in cuts and boneless meat from such carcasses shall be marked ‘‘Boar Meat’’ in addition to complying with the applicable requirements of §  1.243(c) (relating to identity of label—general). Such marks shall be at least 3/4 of an inch high and applied in such a manner so as to be clearly legible.
