Citation: At 2226 hours, while performing a zero tolerance procedure on line I observed fecal material on 1 out of 10 birds randomly selected for inspection at CCP #2- B. The fecal material was brownish green in color, pasty in consistency, approxmately ¼ inch in length and ¾ inch in width and located on the inside of the right wing. Ms. , (lines and Supervisor) was verbally notified and shown the deviation. At approximately 2228 hours, I observed the establishment perform corrective actions as per their HACCP plan. The affected carcass was sent to the reprocessing station, reconditioned and placed back into flow. A review of the establishment's zero tolerance log for CCP #1-B, Line revealed that the last acceptable check performed at 2143 hours, was found to be acceptable and was recorded with a quantifiable value of 0/10 and the initials (HACCP technician). As a result of the deviation, all requirements at all CCP's for that specific lot was performed and found to be acceptable, including the pre-shipment review. The establishment stated the root cause was the brush was not properly working. Ms. , Plant Manager is being notified of the failure to meet the requirements of 9 CFR 417.2(c)(4) and 381.65(e). This document serves as written notice that continued failure to comply with the regulatory requirements may result in additional regulatory or administrative action(s) as described in 9 CFR 500.
