USDA Inspection Report: 7 Mar 2012
Citation: At approximately 1014 hrs, while performing Poultry Finished Products Standard check on 3/7/12, at the post chill location for chickens in establishment 01015-P, the fifth bird checked of a ten bird check was found with fecal. The fecal was greenish and brown in appearance and smeared approximately 1/2 inch in with by 1 inchin length on the center of the back between the thighs. At that time I immediately notified (/PAA Tech) and QA Tech. After review of the plant's HACCP Plan it is found that the HACCP plan addresses fecal at the exit of the chilling process.This noncompliance is a failure to comply with the following regulations:9 CFR 381.65(e)
381.65(e) Poultry carcasses contaminated with visible fecal material shall be prevented from entering the chilling tank.
