USDA Inspection Report: 13 Aug 2010

Code: 03J02
Violation: 310.18

Citation: On August 13, 2010 at approximately 1305 hours while performing 03J02 HACCP Slaughter Verification Procedure I observed carcass #131024-1 with fecal/ingesta contamination. The contamination was located on the brisket, covering an area approximately 14" x 2". In this area were plant like fibrous particles, green/brown in color, ranging in size from 1" to one centimeter in length. The production line was stopped and [redacted] was shown the contamination and informed of the non-compliance. Production was then allowed to continue while the carcass was sent to the side rail where the contamination was removed. When trimmed the carcass was presented for re-inspection and released. This document serves as written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirement(s) could result in additional regulatory or administrative action.


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.
