Address: 122 Greenpoint Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11222
Establishment No.: p4734

USDA Inspection Report: 29 Sep 2010

Code: 03J01
Violation:  417.2(a)(1), 417.5(a)(1), 417.5(a)(2)

Citation: At the close of the Food Safety Assessment performed by EIAO , the following non-compliances were found. 1) The establishment has failed to provide adequate supporting documentation for their choice of monitoring frequency for chilling chickens (CCP2). On 7/22/10, the monitoring frequency was changed from [redacted], to [redacted]. This change was done as a preventative measure in response to multiple deviations from the chilling CCP, however, adequate supporting documentation that the new frequency will control the CCP has not been supplied. This is a non-compliance with 9 CFR 417.5(a)(2). 2) The establishment's Hazard Analysis states that "[redacted]" are "[redacted]" but fails to identify if they are reasonably likely to occur or not. This fails to address all aspects of 417.2(a)(1). The establishment needs to assess all hazards (including pathogens such as Salmonella) as being reasonably likely to occur or not. If the plant assess that the hazards are reasonably likely to occur, their HACCP plan must address how these hazards are reduced, controlled, and/or eliminated. This is a non-compliance with: 9CFR 417.2(a): (a) Hazard analysis. (1) Every official establishment shall conduct, or have conducted for it, a hazard analysis to determine the food safety hazards reasonably likely to occur in the production process and identify the preventive measures the establishment can apply to control those hazards. The hazard analysis shall include food safety hazards that can occur before, during, and after entry into the establishment. A food safety hazard that is reasonably likely to occur is one for which a prudent establishment would establish controls because it historically has occurred, or because there is a reasonable possibility that it will occur in the particular type of product being processed, in the absence of those controls. 9CFR 417.5(a)(1) and (2) which state: (a) The establishment shall maintain the following records documenting the establishment's HACCP plan: (1) The written hazard analysis prescribed in 417.2(a) of this part, including all supporting documentation; (2) The written HACCP plan, including decision making documents associated with the selection and development of CCP's and critical limits, and documents supporting both the monitoring and verification procedures selected and the frequency of those procedures.

Regulation:

417.2(a)(1) Hazard analysis. Every official establishment shall conduct, or have conducted for it, a hazard analysis to determine the food safety hazards reasonably likely to occur in the production process and identify the preventive measures the establishment can apply to control those hazards. The hazard analysis shall include food safety hazards that can occur before, during, and after entry into the establishment. A food safety hazard that is reasonably likely to occur is one for which a prudent establishment would establish controls because it historically has occurred, or because there is a reasonable possibility that it will occur in the particular type of product being processed, in the absence of those controls.

417.5(a)(1) The establishment shall maintain the following records documenting the establishment’s HACCP plan: The written hazard analysis prescribed in 417.2(a) of this part, including all supporting documentation;

417.5(a)(2) The written HACCP plan, including decisionmaking documents associated with the selection and development of CCP’s and critical limits, and documents supporting both the monitoring and verification procedures selected and the frequency of those procedures.
