USDA Inspection Report: 28 Oct 2010

Code: 04C04
Violation: 381.91(b)

Citation: At approximately 01350 hrs. while checking the B- tank # 20 that were holding turkeys, I observed a turkey that had a gall stain on the left thigh area that continued to the back area, which covered must of the left side of the back. I informed Mr. [redacted] assistant supervisor of the non-compliance. I took regulatory control action by applying a hold tag on the tank. After the product was reworked by the plant and re-inspected by myself the tank was released. The plant is not meeting 9 CFR 381.91(b).


381.91(b)(1) Any carcass of poultry accidentally contaminated during slaughter with digestive tract contents shall not be condemned if promptly reprocessed under the supervision of an inspector and thereafter found not to be adulterated. Contaminated surfaces that are cut shall be removed only by trimming. Contaminated inner surfaces that are not cut may be cleaned by trimming alone, or at an approved reprocessing station away from the main processing line, by any method that will remove the contamination, such as vacuuming, washing, and trimming, singly or in combination. All visible specks of contamination must be removed, and if the inner surfaces are reprocessed other than soley by trimming, all surfaces of the carcass shall be treated with chlorinated water containing 20 ppm available chlorine.
