USDA Inspection Report: 12 Jul 2011

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

Citation: On 07/12/2011, at approximately 1114 hours, while performing ISP task code 03J01 Zero Fecal on one of the randomly selected 10 birds on the east evisceration line, I observed fecal material on the inside of the breast to the left of the keel bone. The fecal material was dark brown in color, approximately 1/2 " by 1/4" in size, and had a thick pasty consistency. I took immediate regulatory control action by stopping the east evisceration line and notified Mr. (Evisceration Supervisor) and Ms. (QA Technician) of the noncompliance. I observed the establishment implement immediate corrective actions. I notified Mr. (First Processing Manager) and Mr. (QA 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 # 0091-2011-17446 dated 07/07/2011 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;
