JACKSON, MO (KFVS) -

A meat processing plant shut down for sanitation issues in Cape Girardeau County is back up and running after a satisfactory inspection of the building on Monday.

However, Reis Meat processing in Jackson still won't be able to sell meat until the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services finishes testing the processed and packaged meat.

If you've recently bought meat from Reis, it could take a week for the department to have results from the samples taken.

Consumers who have recently done business with Reis Meat Processing are asked to carefully examine the meats processed by the business before eating, according to state officials.

Inspectors temporarily stopped custom meat processing after an inspection Friday at the Jackson business.

The Mo. Dept. of Agriculture's Meat and Poultry Inspection Program stopped the custom processing at Reis Meat Processing because of "unsanitary practices," according to the Mo. Dept. of Agriculture.

Officials say inspectors found issues with the processing equipment Friday and decided to suspend custom exempt processing.

Custom exempt processing is done for livestock owners for their own consumption.

Custom processing will remain suspended until inspectors deem the equipment satisfactory. An inspection will be completed at the owner's request, according to the state.

For more information, contact your local health office with any food safety questions.
