Establishment No.: p493

USDA Inspection Report: 16 Jun 2011

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

Citation: On 06/16/2011, at approximately 0520 hours, while performing ISP code 04C04 (pre-chill) on the east evisceration line on one of the randomly selected 10 bird sample. I observed fecal material on the outside area of the tail at the vent area. The fecal material was dark brown in color and the two spots were approximately 1/8" in size one on either side of the tail. I took regulatory control action and stopped the east evisceration line and notified Mr. (evisceration supervisor) of the noncompliance. I observed the establishment implement immediate corrective action. This is a failure of the establishments HACCP CCP 1B as well as failure of 9 CFR 381.65(e) and 9 CFR417.2(c)(4). I notified Mr. (First Processing Manager) that a NR would be issued for this noncompliance. The establishment has received both written and oral notification of this noncompliance. Failure to meet regulatory requirements could result in additional administrative action as described in 9 CFR part 500. Please refer to NR# 0064-2011 dated 06/03/2011 for preventive measures which were either not implemented or were ineffective.


381.65(e) Poultry carcasses contaminated with visible fecal material shall be prevented from entering the chilling tank.

417.2(c)(4) List the procedures, and the frequency with which those procedures will be performed, that will be used to monitor each of the critical control points to ensure compliance with the critical limits;
