USDA Inspection Report: 7 Jul 2011
Violation: 381.65(e), 417.2(c)(4)
Citation: On 07/07/2011, at approximately 0949 hours, while performing ISP task code 04C04 (Pre-Chill) on the west evisceration line on one of the 10 bird randomly selected birds, I observed fecal material on the back side of the left hock area. The fecal material was dark brown in color and measured approximately 1/4 " in size. I took immediate regulatory control action by stopping the west evisceration line and notified Mr. (First Processing Manager) and Ms. (Q.A. Technician) of the noncompliance. I observed the establishment implement immediate corrective action. I notified Mr. and Mr. (Q.A. Manager) that a NR would be issued for this noncompliance. This is a failure of the establishments HACCP CCP# 1B as well as 9 CFR 381.65(e) and 9 CFR 417.2(c)(4). The establishment has received both oral and written 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 # 0085-2011-17446 dated 06/29/2011 for preventive measures which were either not implemented or were ineffective, and to which the monitoring period was still being conducted through 07/08/2011.
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;
