USDA Inspection Report: 9 Apr 2012
Citation: On Monday, April 9, 2012, at approximately 1030 hours, I observed the following non-compliance. In the eviscerating/processing room, a poultry carcass was dropped to the floor, an employee picked it up from the floor, and, without any corrective action taken, he then put it back to a pile of carcasses on the processing table, contaminating about 4 other carcasses with direct contact. I immediately isolated these five contaminated carcasses and applied an U. S. Retained Tag (#B38033323) until corrective action could be performed. Plant Manager, was notified.[newline]This is a non-compliance of Regulation 9CFR 416.4 (d). Continued failure to meet the regulatory requirements would lead to further enforcement action.
416.4(d) Product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, storage, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments.
