Violation: 310.25(a), 417.2(b)
Citation: The establishment provided the [redacted]; this document describes [redacted]. The supporting documentation provides [redacted]. The establishment uses a critical limit of [redacted]F in their plan. However, review of the records for the past 6 months indicates the temperatures were all recorded below [redacted]F at CCP2. The supporting documentation does not support the decisions the establishment made in their plan regarding the chilling step and is noncompliant with 417.5(a)(1). The single HACCP plan and flow chart for slaughter includes beef/sheep/goats, and swine. It is not clear from the plan which steps are used in the processing of each individual species, and so does not comply with 9 CFR 417.2(b)(2).

417.2(b)(2) A single HACCP plan may encompass multiple products within a single processing category identified in this paragraph, if the food safety hazards, critical control points, critical limits, and procedures required to be identified and performed in paragraph (c) of this section are essentially the same, provided that any required features of the plan that are unique to a specific product are clearly delineated in the plan and are observed in practice.
