USDA Inspection Report: 22 Nov 2010

Code: 03J02
Violation: 310.18

Citation: On November 22, 2010 at approximately 1615 hours while performing 03J02, HACCP Slaughter Verification Procedure, I observed two carcasses #221529-2 and #221530-2 with fecal/ingesta contamination on them. Carcass #221529-2 had contamination located on the brisket and inside the neck. Carcass #221530-2 had contamination located on the shank, brisket, and inside the neck. Both carcasses had green/brown, plant like fibrous particles that ranged in size from one millimeter in length up to one centimeter in length in the affected areas. Upon observation of both non-compliances, the production line was stopped and all visible contamination was removed by the adjacent trimmers. Production was allowed to resume after the carcasses were presented for re-inspection and passed. [redacted] line leader for this area, was shown the contamination and notified of the non-compliance. 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.
