Citation: On 01 November 2010, at approximately 0945 hrs, whilst performing a scheduled ISP procedure code 01C01, [redacted] (EIAO) and I, when performing the 30 Day Verification Update, in response to the NOIE currently in effect at this establishment, identified the following noncompliance: The "Operational SSOP Record", also known as USA-SSOP-FORM-002, dated 29 October 2010, contains no entries under the section headed "Slaughter Processes (A.M.)". Annotated to the right of this is "No kill till later in the day". Despite the implication that there was no slaughter performed at this establishment until after noon on the 29th of October, the "Slaughter Inspection Report" for the 29th of October reveals that, for the "0" Tolerance Check on this form, carcass #21 was assessed at 1146 am. This reveals that slaughter operations occurred prior to noon on this date. [redacted] Jr, was notified of this noncompliance at approximately 1015 hrs. No regulatory control action was taken as no product was directly affected. The establishment is not in compliance with the following regulations: 9 CFR 416.13(b), which states the following: "Each official establishment shall conduct all other procedures in the Sanitation SOP's at the frequencies specified."; 9 CFR 416.13(c), which states the following: "Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP's.'; 9 CFR 416.16(a), which states the following: "Each official establishment shall maintain daily records sufficient to document the implementation and monitoring of the Sanitation SOP's and any corrective actions taken. The establishment employee(s) specified in the Sanitation SOP's as being responsible for the implementation and monitoring of the procedure(s) specified in the Sanitation SOP's shall authenticate these records with his or her initials and the date."
