Allen Harim Foods, LLC.
Address: 18752 Harbeson Road, Harbeson, DE 19951
Establishment No.: P935
USDA Inspection Report: 19 Dec 2011
Violation: 417.2(c)(4), 381.65(e)
Citation: While performing a zero tolerance fecal check on evisceration line 1 at 1048 hours I observed visible fecal material on one carcass out of 10. Birds were randomly selected at CCP 3 pre-chill location. Fecal material was located inside the back along the spine, measuring approximately 1/2 inch in length by 1/4 inch, brownish green, solid consistency. Shift Manager was notified and observed this monitoring noncompliance as per 9 CFR 500.2(b). notified maintenance to initiate corrective actions and had the back up washer turned on as per HACCP Plan procedures. I observed as HACCP performed a retest on this evisceration line and no visible fecal material was observed. Product Disposition: The identified carcass was taken to the salvage station and reprocessed with chlorinated water in accordance with HACCP Plan procedures. I reviewed the CCP 3 HACCP record, Pre-Chill Fecal Contamination Log, and found the last acceptable check was performed at 10:41, authenticated with initials . I then verified all regulatory requirements were met, including pre-shipment review for the affected production lot and found regulatory requirements were met. There are no interventions between the pre chill location and the chiller. Poultry carcasses contaminated with visible fecal material must be prevented from entering the chill system in accordance with regulatory requirement 9 CFR 381.65(e). Regulatory requirements 9 CFR 417.2(c)(4) and 381.65(e) were not met. This is also a deviation from the critical limit of zero visible fecal contamination at CCP 3, found in CCP section, page 4 of the establishment's HACCP Plan. Assistant Plant Manager is hereby notified of this monitoring noncompliance and the need to implement and document effective measures to prevent recurrence. This document serves as written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional regulatory or administrative action in accordance with 9 CFR 500.4.
