USDA Inspection Report: 19 Apr 2011
Citation: At 0845 hours during the performance of a scheduled 05A02 procedure the following noncompliance was noted as not meeting the regulatory requirements for E. coli testing. 1) The establishment employee designated to collect the samples is not identified. 2) There is no written procedure how a random selection for the sample is achieved and 3) No written procedure on how to handle the sample to ensure sample integrity. This is a violation of 9 CFR 310.25(a)(2)(i). Further investigation reveals no linkage with respect to previous noncompliances with the same cause in the recent past.
310.25(a)(2)(i) Written procedures. Each establishment shall prepare written specimen collection procedures which shall identify employees designated to collect samples, and shall address location(s) of sampling, how sampling randomness is achieved, and handling of the sample to ensure sample integrity. The written procedure shall be made available to FSIS upon request.
