Citation: On October 11, 2011 at 0916 hrs as I was walking by the Liver Chiller I observed a 4 inch piece of intestine, multiple lungs, and multiple gall bladders in the liver chiller. I immediately stopped the production of livers and notified (Packing department Group leader) & (QA Tech) of my findings, I also rejected the liver chiller with USDA rejected tag B40-197879 and informed (Evisceration Supervisor) that the product will be condemned that is in the chiller plus what was produced up to the last check performed. 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.
