B.C. Natural Chicken
Address: 2609 U.S. Rt 22, Fredricksburg, PA 17026
Establishment No.: p493
USDA Inspection Report: 6 Oct 2010
Citation: At approximately 0433 hours, while performing preoperational sanitation verification in the Packing Department, I observed particles of fat and greasy film floating on the water in the neck chiller. On further investigation, I found a buildup of product grease from a prior day's operation on the rocker arm of the neck chiller. I rejected the chiller with U.S. Reject tag No. B39801744 and informed the sanitation lead of the deficiency. I also observed product membranes on the metal cylindrical filter of the marination injector and approximately six spots of dried blood on the marinated product catch basket. I rejected these items also. At approximately 0448 hours, I reinspected the neck chiller, filter and basket and determined them acceptable. I informed QA technician, that an NR would be issued. These deficiencies are in violation of 9 CFR 416.13(c) and the establishment's Sanitation Standard Operating Procedures. I reviewed the SSOP record for this department and found that it had been released at 225 A.M. with no deficiencies recorded for the above-mentioned items. Plant management has received oral and written notification of this noncompliance.
416.13(c) Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s.
