USDA Inspection Report: 17 May 2012
Violation: 417.5(a)(3), 417.5(b)
Citation: On May 18, 2012 at approximately 02:00 hours, I performed a Fully Cooked- Not Shelf Stable HACCP Verification Task (Recordkeeping Component). To perform this procedure, I verified that the monitoring of all critical control points were performed at the specified frequency, the critical limits were met, all verification activities were completed including; all product testing, records review, direct observations, equipment calibrations, corrective actions and the pre-shipment review was completed as outlined in the establishment's Fully Cooked- Not Shelf Stable HACCP Plan, dated: 1/13/12. Following the review of the establishment's Fully Cooked- Not Shelf Stable HACCP records for the production date of 5/16/12, I proceeded to review additional HACCP records for the production date of 5/16/12, and observed the noted recordkeeping noncompliance:I observed on the establishment's Pork Slaughter HACCP monitoring record for critical control point 04-[redacted]", the 9:56am documented monitoring of the aforementioned critical control point for Lot# 28, failed to include the plant designated monitor's initials/ signature. After further review of this record, it was also observed that the establishment's CCP Record Review Verification was performed only including a documented date and signature, but with NO documented "Result" and with NO documented "Time" of when this verification activity was performed. The individual who performed the record review verification also failed to identify that the monitoring entry was not signed or initialed by the trained establishment employee making the entry. The Pre-Shipment Review was performed on 5/16/12, by plant personnel.Mr. FSQA Supervisor, was notified verbally and in writing with this noncompliance record of the establishment's failure to meet the Meat and Poultry Regulatory Requirements of 9 CFR 417.5(b) and 417.5(a)(3) and of the establishment's failure to effectively execute their Pork Slaughter HACCP Plan, dated: 1/13/12.Noncompliance Record # MXL3600052617N/1, dated: 5/15/2012, was found documented with similar cause.

Each of these records shall include the date the record was made.
