Establishment No.: p09965

USDA Inspection Report: 27 Jul 2011

Code: 03J02
Violation: 417.5(a)(1)

Citation: At approximately 0915 hours, I reviewed the supporting documentation for the young chicken HACCP as part of a scheduled 03J02 procedure. At the step cold storage, the establishment states that [redacted] On 7/20/2011, the temperature for the storage truck was recorded at [redacted] degrees Fahrenheit at 1:32 am. It was during this week that a heat wave, temperatures over 90 degrees was occurring in the area. The following day on 7/21/2011, the temperature inside the storage truck was recorded at [redacted] degrees F at 1:37 am. The establishment does document those times when the storage facilities are undergoing defrost by placing an asterisk next to the temperature and explaining what the asterisk is referring to in the comments column. When the storage area is undergoing defrost, the comments column reads "def". There was no asterisk or comment "def" on the above days. Therefore, according to the plant's documentation, this was the temperature inside the cold storage truck. The establishment is not supporting the decisions made in the hazard analysis. The establishment is not complying with 9CFr 417.5(a)(1). Mr. [redacted] HACCP Manager, was verbally notified of the noncompliance.


417.5(a)(1) The establishment shall maintain the following records documenting the establishment’s HACCP plan: The written hazard analysis prescribed in § 417.2(a) of this part, including all supporting documentation
