Citation: CSI on May 29 2012, at approximately 06 45 was doing a zero tolerance check on the turkey line. She found one of 10 randomly selected birds contaminated with fecal. It was green in color with a pasty consistency and contained urea.  The fecal was approximately one inch in length and one quarter of inch wide. The fecal was located on a skin flap between the right thigh and breast.  She stopped the line immediately and informed Mr.  (turkey evisceration supervisor) The plant started corrective actions.  A similar occurence was documented as noted in block #6A of this record.  The proposed further planned actions were either ineffective or not properly applied as demonstrated by todays noncompliance.  Failure to implement effective corrective actions and preventative measures could result in additional administrative and or regulatory actions.
