USDA Inspection Report: 6 Apr 2012

Code: 03J02
Violation: 417.2(c)(4), 417.5(a)(3), 417.5(b)

Citation: SPHV [redacted] observed the following noncompliances while performing a directed HACCP Implementation Procedure:

At approximately 0725 hours, I observed the plant employee monitor CCL 3-B (zero visible fecal). She took ten birds from the line but did not count off birds as she removed them for the line. The HACCP plan for Buddhist poultry states the monitoring procedure for CCP 3-B is: "[redacted] ." The documented random procedures listed under “ for CCP-1, CCP-2, CCP-3 and CCP-4 are: "[redacted] ." This procedure was not performed as written in the HACCP plan, which is a noncompliance with 417.2(c)(4). QC Manager, [redacted] was immediately notified of this noncompliance and Mr. [redacted] manager, was later notified.

Review of the HACCP plan also indicates the establishment lists "[redacted] " as a monitoring procedure for CCP3. Review of the past month’s records show that the establishment does not record the results of this procedure, which is listed in the HACCP plan as a procedure for monitoring the CCP. This is a noncompliance with 417.5(a)(3). Mr. [redacted] manager, was immediately notified of this noncompliance.

At approximately 0835, I observed the plant employee monitor CCL 2-B (giblet chilling). I observed the employee grab a handful of livers from the bin and not count how many livers there were. She then took a temperature by inserting the thermometer into the handful of product. She then grabbed another handful of livers and took a temperature. The Buddhist poultry HACCP plan states for the monitoring procedure of CCP 2-B: [redacted]." This procedure was not performed as written in the HACCP plan, which is a noncompliance with 417.2(c)(4). QC Manager, [redacted] was immediately notified of this noncompliance and Mr.[redacted] was later notified.

At approximately 1100 hours, I requested records for the calibration of the process-monitoring instruments for CCP 5-B. Manager, Mr. [redacted] stated that there are no records to documenting the calibration of process-monitoring instruments for CC 5-B. The HACCP plan states for CCP 5-B for Buddhist poultry, "[redacted] " QC Manager, and manager, Mr. [redacted] stated that the calibration is performed more often than monthly but the results are not documented. This is a noncompliance with 9 CFR 417.5(a)(3). Mr. [redacted] was immediately notified of this noncompliance.

At approximately 1225, I reviewed the Buddhist poultry HACCP records from 4/6/12 and saw that the last entry monitoring CCP 5-B was at 9:37 and 9:38am. The HACCP plan states the storage room temperature

Regulation:

417.2(c)(4) List the procedures, and the frequency with which those procedures will be performed, that will be used to monitor each of the critical control points to ensure compliance with the critical limits;

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.

417.5(b) Each entry on a record maintained under the HACCP plan shall be made at the time the specific event occurs and include the date and time recorded, and shall be signed or initialed by the establishment employee making the entry.
