Citation: On 06/03/2011, at approximately 1116 hours, while performing ISP task code 03J01 (Zero Fecal) on a ten bird randomly selected sample on the east evisceration line, I observed fecal material on one of the sample carcasses. The fecal was located in the tail area of the bird on a partial cloaca and a bursa of fabricius. The fecal material was dark brown in color and semi-paste. it was approximately 1" by 1/4" in size.
