Perdue Farms, Delaware
20621 Savannah Rd, Georgetown, DE 19947
Establishment No.: P2178
USDA Inspection Report: 13 Dec 2011
Citation: At approximately 0430 hrs I observed the following noncompliance in the evisceration picking room. The over head rail and guide bar had numerous amount of feathers and a dark organic residue on top over picker D on line which are non- product contact surfaces. I notified Mr. anitation shift leader, and showed him the aforementioned conditions. I initiated regulatory control action by rejecting picker D area and applying a U.S. Reject tag #B3882532 to the machine. I observed as management implemented corrective actions by scrubbing with a soap pad, water rinse, and sanitized the over head rail, guide bar, and machine. After sanitary conditions were restored at 0448 hrs, I reinspected the entire picker D area, found it acceptable, and removed the U.S Reject tag. The establishment failed to meet regulatory requirements 416.13(c), 416.4, and 416.1 which states: each official establishment must be operated and maintained in a manner sufficient to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and to ensure that product is not adulterated NR serves as written notification to Mr. that continued failure to meet these requirements could result in additional regulatory or administrative action as per 9CFR 500.
416.13(c) Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s.
