USDA Inspection Report: 19 Jan 2012

Code: 03J04
Violation: 381.65(e)

Citation: At approximately 2100 hours, while performing a Poultry ZeroTolerance check on the west Evisceration line, I observed fecal material in one of the ten test carcasses. The fecal material was dark green and runny. It was pooled in the abdominal membrane between the kidney crypts and the ribcage in the left side of the carcass. I took regulatory control by instructing an employee to stop the line. I notified First Processing Manager, of my finding. The plant initiated immediate corrective action and the line was restarted. The affected carcass was taken to a reprocessing station to be recleaned. I observed QA technician perform a retest to determine if the corrective action was effective.


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