USDA Inspection Report: 4 May 2011

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

Citation: On May 4, 2011 at 1310 while checking the lot code on the packaged ducks in a box I observed one duck in a box that had black marks covering about one fourth of the bag and a black residue on the inside of the box. An employee had picked up the bag from the floor and put the bag in a box without cleaning it. A regulatory control action was initiated to restrict use of the box and the ducks in the box until corrective action could be performed (Tag # B 19897568). Mr. was informed immediately. The Regulations in Section 416.13 (b) state "Each official establishment shall conduct all other procedures in the Sanitation SOP's at the frequencies specified." The Regulations in Section 416.4(d) state "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) and 416.4(d) have not been met.

Regulation:

416.13(b) Each official establishment shall conduct all other procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s at the frequencies specified.

416.4(d) Product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, storage, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments.
