Citation: At approximately 0900 hours, while conducting a poultry Zero Tolerance Verification check, the following occurred: [newline]After the slaughter process was completed, turkey necks were each being placed inside its respective carcass before both were placed into the chill tank. I randomly selected and observed 10 turkey carcasses before the chill tank step. Before inspecting one Turkey carcass, I removed the neck from inside the carcass and inspected the neck. At the thick end of the neck, on the base, there were three spots of dark brown fecal ranging in size from 3mmx3mm to 1cmx1cm. I Informed Mr. Evisceration Supervisor and Mr. QA of this non-compliance. Tag #B34802555 was applied to tank #088. This is a failure to meet the regulatory requirements of 381.65(e).
