USDA Inspection Report: 3 Dec 2010

Code: 03J01
Violation: 381.65(e), 417.2(c)(4)

Citation: At approximately 0545 hours, while performing a zero tolerance fecal check on the east evisceration line, I observed two drops of brown, semi-solid fecal material inside one of the test carcasses. One drop, approximately 1/16" in diameter, was located on the breast halfway between the breast keel bone and the thigh joint. The second drop, approximately 1/4" in diameter and smeared at its edges, was located on the tip of the breast keel bone at the vent opening. I took regulatory control action by stopping the line. I informed , First Processing Superintendent, of the noncompliance. The establishment initiated corrective actions. The contaminated carcass was taken to a reprocessing station to be cleaned. This noncompliance is in violation of 9 CFR 417.2(c)(4), 9 CFR 381.65(e), and the establishment's HACCP Plan for CCP #1B. Plant management has received oral and written notification of this noncompliance. Past Similar NRs - Previous Ineffective Plant Actions: The department superintendent or designee will do the following on a daily basis and document through November 19, 2010: inspect check forms of maintenance mechanics, and inspect the alignment of the IOBW. NR: 108-2010 dated 11/1/2010
