USDA Inspection Report: 9 Jun 2011
Citation: 03C01 (corrective action) On April 27, 2011, the establishment took corrective actions when the critical limit () for the veal subprimal cuts, veal primal cuts, boneless trim and veal bones exceeded at the afternoon monitoring (approximately 12 pm). The corrective actions included, "During afternoon monitoring, temperatures were all above the critical limit. All product were put into cooler until temperatures were within critical limits. All product temperature was brought under critical limit. [Preventive measures] Temperatures are monitored with calibrated thermometers and data loggers. Product was immediately put into freezer and preshipment was not signed until it was brought under control. The corrective actions do not give adequate preventive measures. The statement, "Temperatures are monitored with calibrated thermometers and data loggers." does not explain how it will prevent the product temperature from increasing above the critical limit. This is a violation of 9 CFR 417.3(a)(3).
417.3(a)(3) Measures to prevent recurrence are established;
