B.C. Natural Chicken

Address: 2609 U.S. Rt 22, Fredricksburg, PA 17026
Establishment No.: p493

USDA Inspection Report: 1 Feb 2012

Code: 01B02
Violation: 416.13(a), 416.15(b), 416.4(a), 416.4(b)

Citation: At approximately 0510 hrs. after the plants pre-operational sanitation and prior to the start of operations, I observed the following noncompliance's while performing pre-operational sanitation. In the cut-up department I observed pieces of fat dried inside the tray pack racks and fat and chicken overspray on multiple tray pack racks located against the north wall of the department. I immediately rejected four stacks of the tray pack racks with U.S. tag #B40170486 and notified the sanitation manager of the noncompliance. While continuing my pre-op inspection of the department I observed pieces of fat and chicken meat under the wing conveyor and the frame between the guides. I immediately rejected the wing conveyor with U.S. tag #B40170493 and notified the sanitation manager of the noncompliance. After a review of the plants SSOP records for the cut-up department, the wing conveyor was documented as rejected for meat pieces and the wing conveyor was recleaned and sanitized and the department was released for USDA inspection at 0457 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.
