Address: 4030 Conrad Weiser Parkway, Womelsdorf, PA 19567
Establishment No.: m08615

USDA Inspection Report: 15 Oct 2010

Code: 03J02
Violation: 417.5(a)(1)

Citation: At approximately 11:40 hours while reviewing the Weekly Sanitation Form for the slaughter area in order to verify a step in the verification plan, Dr. [redacted] and I observed that the blade integrity checks for the hand saw and the split saw (carcass saw) had not been recorded. Review of the establishment's HACCP plan for slaughter shows that at the steps cut brisket and splitting, metal is not considered a hazard because the establishment is performing blade integrity check prior to the start of slaughter and at the end of slaughter. The establishment is not supporting the decisions made in the Hazard Analysis. [redacted] Plant Manager was verbally informed of the non-compliance. The establishment is not compiling with 9CFR 415.5(a)(1).


417.5(a)(1) The written hazard analysis prescribed in 417.2(a) of this part, including all supporting documentation
