Putting Glass Walls on Pennsylvania Slaughterhouses So We Can See Behind Closed Doors
Farmer’s Pride Inc.

Address: 154 West Main St, Fredricksburg, PA, 17026
Establishment No.: p1304

USDA Inspection Report: 15 Feb 2012

Code: 03J02
Violation: 417.5(a)(2)

Citation: On February 15th I reviewed the establishment's HACCP plan and CCP support documents folder and found numerous deficiencies for CCP 4B in the CCP support documents folder. The supporting documentation under CCP [redacted]) has the following errors: (1) The background information page gives information on monitoring frequencies and procedures only. (2) Regulation 381.66(e) for air chill is not cited or provided. Regulation 381.66(b), which identifies poultry chill times based on the weight of the carcass is given instead. (3) The background information page states [redacted], page in the HACCP book. The background information page in the CCP book should reflect the same information that is in the HACCP plan. (4) The scientific and support documents discuss antimicrobial growth in chilling systems but not support for meeting the time/temperature requirement. This noncompliance is a failure to comply with 417.5(a)(2). This document serves as written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in further enforcement action.


417.5(a)(2) The written HACCP plan, including decisionmaking documents associated with the selection and development of CCP’s and critical limits, and documents supporting both the monitoring and verification procedures selected and the frequency of those procedures.
