B.C. Natural Chicken
Address: 2609 U.S. Rt 22, Fredricksburg, PA 17026
Establishment No.: p493
USDA Inspection Report: 3 Feb 2012
Violation: 416.13(c), 416.4(a), 416.4(b)
Citation: At approximately 0535 hrs. after the plant pre-operational sanitation and prior to the start of operations, I observed the following noncompliance while performing pre-operational sanitation. In the breast deboning department I observed one piece of thigh meat in the repack #2 machine. I immediately rejected the repack #2 machine with U.S.tag #B40170494 and notified the sanitation manager of the noncompliance. While continuing my inspection of the department I observed chicken particles on one of the white formers and overspray of chicken meat and fat on numerous yellow cords and overhead conduit. I immediately notified of my observations. The white former, yellow cords and conduit were all cleaned in my presence before the start of operations. After a review of the plants SSOP records no deficiencies were documented prior to my observations for the repack # 2 machine and the department was released for USDA inspection at 0525 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.
