Establishment No.: m08615

USDA Inspection Report: 21 Sep 2011

Code: 03J01
Violation: 310.18, 417.2(c)(4)

Citation: At approximately 0715, while performing an 03J01 procedure, I observed ingesta in the carcass of a sheep. The ingesta was located on the area of the iliopsoas muscle of the animal about 6 cm posterior to the opening of the neck. The ingesta covered an area about 4cm by 3cm. No regulatory control was taken as the establishment began immediate corrective actions on the carcass in my presence. Re-inspection of the carcass found it acceptable. Mr. was verbally notified of the non-compliance. The establishment is not complying with 9CFR417.2(c)(4) and 310.18. (b)(6)(b)(7)


310.18(a) Carcasses, organs, and other parts shall be handled in a sanitary manner to prevent contamination with fecal material, urine, bile, hair, dirt, or foreign matter; however, if contamination occurs, it shall be promptly removed in a manner satisfactory to the inspector.

417.2(c)(4) List the procedures, and the frequency with which those procedures will be performed, that will be used to monitor each of the critical control points to ensure compliance with the critical limits
