USDA Inspection Report: 24 Jun 2010

Code: 01C02
Violation: 416.13(c), 416.3(a)

Citation: June 24, 2010 09:55hrs While conducting a scheduled operational sanitation inspection task in the evisceration department, procedures at the reprocessing sink were observed being performed that were contrary to the establishment's written SSOP plans. The sink itself was heavily soiled with residue from reworking product and was filled with at least ten birds awaiting rework in standing water. Also, the black cart that is used as the chilling vat for non-kosher carcasses had an insufficient amount of ice to achieve its purpose. Furthermore, this black cart was discovered parked underneath a rack of chickens awaiting rework while actively dripping their bodily fluids into the chill water. Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) Form 6502-1 #B39133001 was applied to the cart and its contents were retained. [redacted] slaughter manager, was verbally informed of the noncompliance. In the non-kosher processing room, a square, grey, "edible" barrel was seen being used to hold chicken feet while they were being processed. The barrel had a large crack in the middle and was recognized as the same barrel [redacted] FSIS Inspector-In-Charge, had requested Mr. to remove from the large salting room and discard early the previous week. The barrel obviously had not been discarded and had been allowed to reenter production flow. FSIS Form 6502-1 #B39133002 was applied to the barrel, rejecting it. [redacted] processing co-manager, was informed verbally of the noncompliance. U.S. Code of Federal Regulations, Title 9, Chapter III, Section 416.13(c) states: "Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOPs." Section 416.3(a) states: "Equipment and utensils used for processing or otherwise handling edible product or ingredients must be of such material and construction to facilitate thorough cleaning and to ensure that their use will not cause the adulteration of product during processing, handling, or storage. Equipment and utensils must be maintained in sanitary condition so as not to adulterate product." This document serves as written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements may result in additional regulatory and/or administrative action(s).
