USDA Inspection Report: 4 Mar 2011
Citation: At approximately 1245 hrs., I observed the following noncompliance while giving breaks at station three in the evisceration department. While instructing my trimmer to hang back a chicken carcass for contamination, I observed an employee in the packing department pick a chicken carcass off the floor and throw it into a blue combo bin full of chicken. I immediately stopped the line and informed the packing department lead of the noncompliance and instructed QA to retain the blue combo bin of chicken carcasses until I was done giving breaks. I then started the evisceration line and finished giving breaks. After a review of the SSOP records for the packing department no deficiencies were documented prior to my observation. The blue combo bin of chicken carcasses were reconditioned and monitored by QA in my presence. 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.
