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

USDA Inspection Report: 18 Jan 2012

Code: 03J02
Violation: 381.65(e)

Citation: 381.65(e) At approximately 0810 hours, while I was performing a finished product standards test, along with Inspector on the turkey line, I found one of ten randomly selected birds contaminated with fecal material. The fecal material was on the underside area of the right wing of the bird. It was green in color, pasty in consistency, and approximately one quarter inch in size. The line was stopped. I informed Evisceration supervisor, and QA. The establishment implemented immediate corrective action. This is the last point in the process where preventative measures could be taken prior to product entering the chill system. This noncompliance is a failure to comply with the following regulations: 9 CFR 417.2(c) (4), and 9 CFR381.65 (e).


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