On August 22, 2011 at 4:00 pm, I checked the line speed at the evisceration table and found it to be in excess of that allowable according to the regulation. Upon my initial check, the establishment was running steers at seconds between carcasses and upon a second check there was seconds between carcasses. According to 9 CFR 310.1(B)(iii) Inspection using a Viscera Table, Tongue out presentation: For Steers and Heifers: 275 head per hour with 3 inspectors at the head chain, 4 inspectors at the table and 2 inspectors at the rail the line is to run with 13.10 seconds between carcasses. I, immediately , stopped the line and rang the bell for a supervisor. Mr. arrived. I discussed the line speed with Mr. , and he called Mr. . I restarted the line, the speed was adjusted.
