Citation: On Monday 16, 2011 when performing ISP task 01B02, I observed the following noncompliances: In area #1 IU # 3 Stunner I observed dried blood , feathers and dried fecal material on the ceiling above the stunner and adjacent areas. In IU #5 there was a build up on the track in the bleeding tunnel and at IU # 17 steam/ recirculation pipes there was a build up on the support beam. I notified Mr. of the above noncompliances and they were cleaned and re-inspected and released. In the chilling area IU #1 I observed fat feathers and a build up on the shackles, and the bird selectors, I tagged the Chic way line with U.S. reject tag # B39133524, and notified Mr. of the noncompliance at 0515 hours. I also observed black grease on the exit belt of the chiller and several small black specks in the dump tanks at the pre-chill station. In evisceration at the vent machine guide bar I observed black friction grease, I notified Mr. and he had the noncompliances cleaned. At 0550 hours Mr. requested that the chic way line be re-inspected, I found the items to be acceptable and released them to production.
