USDA Inspection Report: 20 Dec 2011

Code: 03J01
Violation: 381.65(e), 417.2(c)(4)

Citation: At approximately 0920 hours, while performing an 03J01 zero tolerance fecal check on a 10-bird randomly selected sample at the East Line prechill station, I observed fecal contamination on the third bird. A small (less than inch) spot of brown, pasty fecal material was on the left flap, on the edge of the skin and closer to the breast than the tail. FLS Dr. was present and confirmed the fecal contamination. First Processing Manager was immediately notified, and the establishment instituted corrective actions. This is the last point in the process where preventive measures could be taken prior to product entering the chill system. An 03J02 procedure will be performed on this lot of product after the preshipment review is performed by the establishment. This document serves as written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirements may result in additional enforcement action as described in 9CFR 500. Past Similar NRs - Previous Ineffective Plant Actions: For the next week 12/6/11 to 12/12/11 an extra checker will remain on the west line.


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

417.2(c)(4) List the procedures, and the frequency with which those procedures will be performed, that will be used to monitor each of the critical control points to ensure compliance with the critical limits;
