What's wrong with this picture? Reduced Oxygen Packaging (ROP)

Updated: May 31, 2020

Here we have some reduced oxygen packaged (vacuum sealed) smoked trout. There is a key element missing in the identification of the product. Can you identify it?


The Food Sanitation Rules are very clear that any TCS foods under vacuum seal required a date and time stamp. All ROP items must be opened with-in 48 hours whether stored in the cooler or freezer.
