USDA Inspection Report: 25 Jun 2010
Citation: On June 25th, 2010, at approximately 8:23 hours, I performed a presentation verification (ISP Code 06D02) at the third inspection station on the West evisceration line. At a line speed of [redacted] birds per minute, presentation failed with a 10 bird total nonconformance weight of 28. This failure consisted of 1 contamination on viscera (6 noncon. factors), 1 viscera on shackle (8 noncon. factors), 1 membrane (2 noncon. factors), & 2 contamination inside bird (6 noncon. factors). I immediately informed , Evisceration Group Lead, of the establishments failure to meet regulatory requirements, I also requested that QA be notified and perform presentation retests. The first three QA retests all failed, at 8:37, 8:50, & 9:28 am. Line speed was reduced to [redacted] bpm. QA performed 10 other retests between 9:41 & 13:17 passing and failing on a regular basis. USDA determined that the establishment could not pass the presentation tests and informed that the line speed would remain at [redacted] bpm for the remainder of the shift.. Establishment management has received oral & written communication regarding this non-compliance. Continued failure to meet regulatory requirements could result in additional enforcement action as described in 9 CFR 500.
