8am to Meridian, 2nd line - "~ed by survey: 248 lbs Corned Beef, 24 lbs roast beef and 716 lbs pickles, which were thrown overboard."

Presumably these items were rotten, although the thought of finding a third of a ton of rotten pickles isn't too nice a thought.

"Condemned by Survey: ..." by which it was the Survey team which got stuck with inventorying (and judging fitness) of the mess supplies that day.
