Address: 1 River Rd, Juniata Cty, Mifflintown, PA 17059
Establishment No.: p1015

USDA Inspection Report: 13 Jul 2011

Code: 03J04
Violation: 381.65(e)

Citation: At approximately 0537 hours, I performed Poultry Zero Tolerance check on the Meyn line. The fecal was observed on the inside cavity of a chicken carcass.It was light brown in color and was approximately 1'2" by 1". Since there were no employees between me and the chicken soaker when I performed this check, it is reasonable to assume the contaminated bird would have entered the chicken soaker in violation of regulation 381.65(e), as well as the plant's HACCP plan, Chicken Slaughter CCP # 1. The line was immediately stopped and Mr. (First Processing Superintendent) was notified.[newline]At approximately 0632 hours, a tank of reprocessed turkeys was retained with tag # B37853409 for ingesta on the turkeys neck area. Mr. (Turkey Evisceration Supervisor) was notified.


381.65(e) Poultry carcasses contaminated with visible fecal material shall be prevented from entering the chilling tank.
