Putting Glass Walls on Pennsylvania Slaughterhouses So We Can See Behind Closed Doors from FAUN Friends Of Animals United
John E. Martin & Sons

Address: 55 Lower Hillside Rd, Stevens, PA 17578
Establishment No.: m08888

USDA Inspection Report: 8 May 2012

Code: 03G02
Violation: 417.2(c)

Citation: At approximately 1330 hours, Dr. [redacted] and I were reviewing the establishment's HACCP plan number 13, Fully Cooked Not Shelf Stable, Smoked or Cooked Products. The critical limits for CCP 2B, Chilling, states that [redacted]" the supporting documentation for this critical limit is cited as being FSIS Appendix B Compliance Guidelines for Cooling Heat-Treated Meat and Poultry Products. Review of Appendix B shows that the critical limit the establishment is citing, number 2 also states that "chilling should begin within 90 minutes after the cycle is complete." The critical limit cited by the establishment fails to include this as part of the critical limit they are monitoring yet is using the Appendix as the supporting documentation for the critical limits which they have set. Ms. [redacted] HACCP Coordinator was shown the non-compliance. The establishment is not complying with 9CFR417.2(c)(3) which states, "List the critical limits that must be met at each of the critical control points. Critical limits shall, at a minimum, be designed to ensure that applicable targets or performance standards established by FSIS, and any other requirement set forth in the chapter pertaining to the specific process or product, are met."

Establishment appealed NR. Appeal granted. See attached MOI for basis.

Regulation:

417.2(c)(3) List the critical limits that must be met at each of the critical control points. Critical limits shall, at a minimum, be designed to ensure that applicable targets or performance standards established by FSIS, and any other requirement set forth in this chapter pertaining to the specific process or product, are met
