Violation: 381.65(e), 417.2(c)(4)

Citation: At approximately 2044 hours on 02/27/2012, while performing a Poultry Zero Tolerance Verification on the West evisceration line, I observed one carcass with fecal material inside the carcass. The fecal material was green, semi-solid, and smeared over an area approximately 1/2" by 1" on the inside of the left opening cut, between the breast keel bone and the leg. I took regulatory control action by requesting a plant employee to stop the line. I informed First Processing Manager, of my finding. Ms. initiated immediate corrective action so the line could be restarted and took the affected carcass to the reprocessing station to be reprocessed. This establishment has identified fecal material as a significant hazard in its hazard analysis and controls this hazard with CCP 3B. For past similar noncomplliance, please refer to Record No. YVB5721010819N. Failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional enorcement action as described in 9 CFR part 500.


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;
