Establishment No.: 00824 P

USDA Inspection Report: 8 Sep 2010

Code: 03C02
Violation: 417.4(a)(2)(ii)

Citation: On September 8, 2010 at approximately 10:00am I was returning to the inspection station from conducting a fecal check and passed the container that holds the chlorine for the final wash and salvage station, I subsequently tilted the container to measure the contents to find that this container was empty. I immediately informed plant manager, and reminded him that this is a CCP. I took regulatory control action by placing USDA Retain Tag #B39133831 on a full tank of eviscerated duckling and placing Retain Tag #B39133811 on 1/2 tank of eviscerated duckling between both tanks approximately 240 in head in total. Mr. 's immediate actions were to fill the chlorine container and determined the level to be between 20-50ppm. He then orally advised corrective actions were to be implemented at the conclusion of the slaughter. The retained ducklings were rehung and passed through the final wash containing 20-50ppm of chlorine. Both tanks were then released as inspected and passed. I then checked all applicable CCP's, record review and direct observation for the day's production to verify compliance. Pre-shipment review will be conducted prior to shipping.
