USDA Inspection Report: 3 Feb 2011

Code: 01C02
Violation: 416.13(b), 416.13(c), 416.4(d)

Citation: On February 3, 2011 at 1005 I observed the ducks on the Evisceration line outside the USDA office. These ducks which are not inspected yet were swinging over the drip pan and dripping water into a tank of inspected and passed duckling, and also were dripping into a tank of ice that will be used to chill the ducks. Both of the tanks were directly under the drip pan. A regulatory control action was initiated to restrict use of the ducks in the tank and the tank of ice until corrective action could be performed ( Tag # B 19897599 for the tank of ducks and Tag # B 24791530 for the tank of ice). Mr. was informed immediately. The Regulations in Section 416.13(b) and (c) states "Each official establishment shall conduct all other procedures in the Sanitation SOP's at the frequencies specified. Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP's." The Regulations in Section 416.4(d) states " Product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, storage, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments." The Regulations in Section 416.13(b), (c) and 416.4(d) have not been met.

Regulation:
