Address: RR#2 Leona Rd, Troy, PA 16947
Establishment No.: m09784

USDA Inspection Report: 27 Feb 2012

Code: 03H02
Violation: 417.5(a)(3)

Citation: On 2/27/2012 , while performing heat treated not fully cooked , not shelf stable , I was reviewing plants HACCP plan. I observed that the HACCP plan was referring to a CCP , frequency and critical limits that have not been validated . The CCP , frequency and critical limits referred to in the HACCP plan was a study published at the Texas A&M university , study named ,Alternative cooling Procedures for Large Intact Products to Achieve Stabilization Microbiological Performance Standards, On a previous date discussed this issue with Plant and were informed of the need to validate , supporting documentation. At the time of our discussion plant advised that they were going back to Appendix B for supporting documentation and CCP , frequencies and critical limits , which at this time the plant has failed to do.

This is a deviation from plants HACCP plan for heat treated , not fully cooked , not shelf stable and a noncompliance with meat and poultry regulation 417.5(a)(3).

Failure to control this type of noncompliance could result in further regulatory and or administrative control measures.

A regulatory control action was taken on 17 whole hams , 6 daisy hams, 34 ham hocks and 8 shoulders using retained tag number B38685271.

Regulation:

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.
