Establishment No.: p533
USDA Inspection Report: 3 Dec 2010
Citation: At approximately 1145 hrs. I observed the following noncompliance in the cut-up department while performing the review and observation component for the 01C02 procedure. When I entered the department I observed the following conditions; the cut- up line was stopped the conveyors were full with chicken carcasses falling on the floor both back up tanks were full to capacity. She rang the bell to let the packing department know to stop sending the chicken up the conveyor but the chicken continued to come up the conveyor causing more chicken to fall on the floor. At that time I initiated regulatory control action and stopped the conveyor from bringing chicken from the downstairs department. Other conditions in the department were an excessive amount of chicken wings on the floor by the chutes and chicken breasts on the floor under the line. Maintenance was called to fix the problem with the line and once all the product was recovered from the floor and reconditioned and the tanks were emptied, I relinquished regulatory control. After a review of the SSOP records for the cut up department, no deficiencies were documented prior to my observation. 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.
