Citation: On 05/10/2011, at approximately 0538 hours, when performing ISP task 03J01 Zero fecal I randomly selected the 10 bird sample from the west evisceration line, one of the 10 birds in the sample I observed fecal material on the right hock area. The fecal was approximately 3/4" by 3/8" in size, brown in color and thick pasty in texture. I took regulatory control action and stopped the west evisceration line. I notified Mr. ( First Processing Manager), Mr. (Evisceration Supervisor) and Mr. (Director of Quality Control) of my findings. I observed the establishment implement immediate corrective action. This is a failure of the establishments HACCP Plan for CCP 1B as well as 9 CFR 381.65(e) and 9 CFR 417.2(c)(4). I notified Mr. that a NR would be issues for this noncompliance.
