USDA Inspection Report: 9 Feb 2011
Citation: On reviewing the water chlorine testing records on 02/08/2011 as part of an unscheduled 03J01 procedure, I noted documentation of high total chlorine levels at the reprocessing station. The recording, made at 0817 hrs, was documented as 110ppm. As per the corrective actions, production at reprocessing and salvage stations was stopped and maintenance notified. A retest performed at 0827 hrs was within normal limits and production was continued. The last acceptable test was performed at the reprocessing station at 0753 hrs ([redacted] ppm) and at the salvage station at 0752 hrs. No product was retained. Reprocessed and salvage product produced between the last acceptable test and the high recorded test measure is considered not acceptable due to exposure to chlorine levels in excess of [redacted] ppm. The establishment [redacted]. However, the monitoring procedure and corrective actions in the program has not prevented the adulteration of product. Thus, the current documentation does not support the establishment's decision that excessive chlorine level is not a chemical hazard likely to occur. This is a violation of 9 CFR 417.5(a)3.
417.5(a)(3) Records documenting the monitoring of CCP’s and their critical limits, including the recording of actual times, temperatures, or other quantifiable values, as prescribed in the establishment’s HACCP plan; the calibration of process-monitoring instruments; corrective actions, including all actions taken in response to a deviation; verification procedures and results; product code(s), product name or identity, or slaughter production lot. Each of these records shall include the date the record was made.
