B.C. Natural Chicken
Address: 2609 U.S. Rt 22, Fredricksburg, PA 17026
Establishment No.: p493
USDA Inspection Report: 16 Dec 2011
Citation: At approximately 2000 hours while performing my scheduled procedure code 01C01 I noticed the "line leader, designee" of different departments are marking accept on all the SSOP paperwork and writing the time but not performing the "Cleanup Procedures". I then proceeded to find who is in charge of monitoring the implementation of the "Cleanup Procedures" and discovered no one person is in charge of the monitoring of SSOP paperwork or procedures. I proceeded to request three months of previous SSOP paperwork from quality assurance. Within the entire three months of SSOP paperwork from dayshift and nightshift not one comment for any deviation has been documented on the SSOP paperwork. It appears day shift or night shift is not monitoring the SSOP procedures being performed. This is a noncompliant of 416.13(C). Furthermore, the Plant Establishment SSOP states: "[redacted] "[redacted] " . I immediately notified Quality Assurance and Plant Management. Continued failure to meet regulatory requirements can lead to enforcement actions as described in 9CFR part 500.4.
416.13(c) Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s.
