 USDA Inspection Report: 12 Jul 2010

Code: 01C02
Violation: 416.13(c), 416.4(d)

Citation: At approximately 0235 hrs. I observed the following noncompliance in the cut-up department while performing the review and observation component for the 01C02 procedure. I observed an excessive amount of breasts backed up on line #[redacted] breast conveyor. The breasts were overflowing on to the box track and also falling on the floor. I immediately notified the cut-up supervisor of the noncompliance and I initiated regulatory control action and directed maintenance to stop the lines. The lines remained off until the product was recovered and reconditioned and the process was brought back into compliance. After a review of the plants SSOP records for the cut-up department, no deficiencies were documented prior to my observation. This document serves as a written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional enforcement action described in 9 CFR part 500.


416.13(c) Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s.

416.4(d) Product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, storage, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments.
