Putting Glass Walls on Connecticut Slaughterhouses So We Can
See Behind Closed Doors
Address: 785 Middle St, Bristol, CT, 06010
Establishment No.: M5998
USDA Inspection Report: 17 May 2012
Citation: While performing a Slaughter HACCP Verification Task on 5/17/12 at approximately 1000 hrs, I observed the following non compliance. The establishment's Hazard Analysis for Calf Slaughter does not address SRM (Specified Risk Material) at any of the process steps. The establishment did not identify SRM as a potential biological hazard in their Hazard Analysis. This is a noncompliance with 9 CFR parts 417.2(a)(1) for failure to conduct an adequate hazard analysis. The establishment has maintained their "SRM Removal Log" which documents the disposal of SRM for cattle of all ages. Plant owner Arthur Barillaro was notified of this noncompliance, and of this noncompliance record.
Regulation: Every official establishment shall conduct, or have conducted for it, a hazard analysis to determine the food safety hazards rea- sonably likely to occur in the produc- tion process and identify the preven- tive measures the establishment can apply to control those hazards. The hazard analysis shall include food safe- ty hazards that can occur before, dur- ing, and after entry into the establish- ment. A food safety hazard that is rea- sonably likely to occur is one for which a prudent establishment would estab- lish controls because it historically has occurred, or because there is a reason- able possibility that it will occur in the particular type of product being processed, in the absence of those controls.
