Putting Glass Walls on Pennsylvania Slaughterhouses So We Can See Behind Closed Doors
B.C. Natural Chicken

Address: 2609 U.S. Rt 22, Fredricksburg, PA 17026
Establishment No.: p493

USDA Inspection Report: 8 Jan 2011

Code: 01B02
Violation: 416.13(c)

Citation: At approximately 0450 hours, while waiting for the Cut-Up Department to be released by Quality Assurance so I could perform preoperational sanitation verification, I observed product grease and residue on several shackles and kickouts in the Packing Department. On further inspection, I observed greasy shackles along the entire length of the chickway line. Two whole bird kickouts, at whole bird bagging and the saw area, were also greasy. I rejected the shackle line with US Reject tag no.B24000588. I informed QA tech and sanitation lead of the deficiencies. When the Cut-Up Department was ready for my verification inspection, I observed numerous small pieces of product residue on the backstop of a whole bird kickout in the Cut-Up Department. This was recleaned in my presence. I reinspected the Packing Department shackle line, determined it acceptable, and released the line to production at 0516 hours. On reviewing the establishment's preoperational sanitation records, I observed that the Packing Department was released at 0420 hours with no shackle or line deficiencies noted. These deficiencies are a violation of 9 CFR 416.13(c) and the establishment's Sanitation Standard Operating Procedures for preoperational sanitation. Plant management has received oral and written notification of this noncompliance.

Regulation:

416.13(c) Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s.
