Establishment No.: p1015
USDA Inspection Report: 6 Jun 2012
Citation: The results of a USDA presentation test on the turkey eviscerating line on 6/6/12 at 06:40 am exceeded the limit for presentation errors. I notified Turkey Evisceration Supervisor, to reduce the line speed by 10 per cent as required. QA performed further testing which resulted in process control, allowing the line to return to normal operating speed.
