USDA Inspection Report: 9 Aug 2010

Code: 03H02
Violation: 417.4(a)(2)(ii), 417.5(a)(3)

Citation: At approximately 0725 hours, I went into the processing area to retrieve the previous production weeks records to perform and complete scheduled procedure 03H02. When I reviewed the ' HACCP Verification Form-011' I found noncompliance. On the bottom half of this form is all the direct observations performed during that week; for each process. Under the 'Heat Treated' process sections the recorder documented values and times for SCW Bacon and Premium Bacon. The documented value for the SCW Bacon was [redacted] F and for the Premium Bacon [redacted]*F. These temperatures listed are the temperatures reached during the Smoke/ Heating part of this process. Under Plan [redacted]), under CCP 1B; they list " [redacted] . The limit listed says, ' [redacted] .' This Haccp Plan also states that [redacted]. The two bacons listed were the Heat Treated products documented for that week, under direct observation verification. The direct observer did not observe the actual CCP and limits. Mr. [redacted] was notified of this noncompliance and shown the records, when he became available. No regulatory control action was necessary because the monitor has the correct CCP limits listed with the actual values and times. The establishment failed to comply with the regulatory requirements listed under 9 CFR 417.5(a)(3) and 417.4(a)(2)(ii).
