B.C. Natural Chicken
Address: 2609 U.S. Rt 22, Fredricksburg, PA 17026
Establishment No.: p493
USDA Inspection Report: 10 Aug 2011
Citation: On August 10th, 2011, while walking through the second processing department by the Giblet chiller I noticed an extreme amount of livers with the lungs & gall bladders still attached in the liver chiller and in a case of livers at the exit of the liver chiller. The lungs & gall bladders are consider inedible product by agency standards. I immediately notified , Second Processing Superintendant & , Evisceration Group Lead of my findings. I stopped the harvesting of livers until the establishment can ensure that inedible material does not enter the product chiller, I also asked that the liver chiller be drained and sanitized. This topic was discussed in the weekly USDA/ Establishment meeting on August 3rd, 2011. CSI also found the same issue on Monday, August 1st, 2011. The establishment has received written and oral notification of this non-compliance. Failure to meet regulatory requirements could result in additional administrative action as described in 9 C.F.R. 500.
