USDA Inspection Report: 17 May 2011
Citation: On this day as part of an 03C02, I reviewed the records for the HACCP plan for Raw Not Ground (Intact) . CCP 1B is the "[redacted]". For the monitoring procedure for this CCP "[redacted] ." For the verification procedure "[redacted] . 9 CFR 417.4(a)(2)(i)(ii)(iii) states "Ongoing verification activites include but are not limited to: The calibration of process-monitoring instruments;direct observation of monitoring activities and corrective actions; and the review of records generated and maintained in accordance with 417.5(a)(3)." The "direct observation of monitoring activities and activities" means that one person does the monitoring procedures and one person does the verification procedure, especially in a larger plant such as Gold Medal Packing where there are plenty of employees. On May 16 a review of records showed that verified and monitored the application of [redacted] to intact veal. This a verification non-compliance.
