Establishment No.: p493

USDA Inspection Report: 30 Jul 2010

Code: 06D02
Violation: 381.76(b)

Citation: On 7/30/2010, at approximately 0630 hours, I performed presentation verification (ISP code 06D02) at the second inspection station on the west evisceration line. At a line speed of birds per minute, presentation failed with a 10-bird total nonconformance weight ofThis failure consisted of 1 viscera not uniform (8 nonconformance factors), 1 viscera below wing (12 nonconformance factors), 1 no viscera (20 nonconformance factors), and 2 contamination inside bird (6 nonconformance factors each). I immediately notified , Evisceration Group Lead, and , Evisceration Supervisor, of the establishment's failure to meet regulatory requirements and that a NR would be issued. I also informed them that the west evisceration line speed must be reduced toirds per minute (a per minute reduction) and requested that QA perform presentation retests. QA presentation retests passed atand birds per minute. Establishment management have received oral and written notification concerning this noncompliance. Past Similar NRs - Previous Ineffective Plant Actions: Please see plant response on file for NR 80-2010 dated 7/15/2010 The previous preventive measure was either not implemented or was ineffective in preventing recurrence of this noncompliance. Continued failure to meet regulatory requirements could result in additional enforcement action as described in 9 CFR 500.


381.76(b) There are five systems of postmortem inspection: Streamlined Inspection System (SIS) and the New Line Speed (NELS) Inspection System, both of which shall be used only for broilers and cornish game hens; the New Turkey Inspection (NTI) System, which shall be used only for turkeys; Traditional Inspection; and Ratite Inspection.
