B.C. Natural Chicken
Address: 2609 U.S. Rt 22, Fredricksburg, PA 17026
Establishment No.: p493
USDA Inspection Report: 7 Dec 2011
Violation: 416.13(c), 416.4(a), 416.4(b)
Citation: At approximately 0450hrs., after the plants pre-operational sanitation and prior to the start of operations I observed the following noncompliance's while performing the 01B02 procedure for pre-operational sanitation. In the cut-up department I observed chicken and fat particles over sprayed on the product contact surface of the drum chute at the drum conveyor. I immediately rejected the drum chute with U.S. tag #B40170454 and notified of the noncompliance. While continuing my inspection of the cut-up department I observed an excessive amount of product residue build up under the main scale conveyor leading to the cut-up cooler. And also an excessive amount of product residue build up under the black belt conveyor in the cut-up cooler which leads to the shipping cooler. I notified of both noncompliance's and also notified him of the fat and chicken meat sprayed under the metal door from the tray pack department into the shipping cooler. After a review of the plants SSOP records no deficiencies were documented for the drum chute and the department was released for USDA inspection at 0440 hrs. This document serves as a written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional enforcement action described in 9 CFR part 500.
