Code: 03J02
Violation: 417.2(a)(1), 417.3(b)(4)

Citation: On January 31, 2011 there was a violative fast positive residue result posted on LEARN for a roaster pig, which originated from This roaster pig was slaughtered on December 27, 2010 and screened with the in-plant FAST Antimicrobial Screen Test and found to be positive with a zone of 10mm. Samples of Liver, Kidney and Muscle were submitted to the Midwestern Laboratory to be analyzed. In reviewing your HACCP plan you address residue as not reasonably likely to occur with a reason given as "FSIS records demonstrate that residues have not been a problem in the past". With this notification of a violative roaster pig with a Gentamicin Sulfate residue in the kidney it demonstrates that your HACCP plan does not adequately address residue as a hazard reasonably likely to occur. Mr. Jr was notified of this violative residue result posted on LEARN. The establishment is not complying with 9 CFR 417.2(a)(1) which states in part that: "every official establishment shall conduct, or have conducted for it, a hazard analysis to determine the food safety hazards reasonable likely to occur in the production process and identify the preventive measures the establishment can apply to control those hazards. The hazard analysis shall include food safety hazards that can occur before, during, and after entry into the establishment. A food safety hazard that is reasonably likely to occur is one for which a prudent establishment would establish controls because it historically has occurred, or because there is a reasonable possibility that it will occur in the particular type of product being processed, in the absence of those controls". 9 CFR 417.3(b)(4) which states in part: "Perform or obtain reassessment by an individual trained in accordance with 417.7 of this part, to determine whether the newly identified deviation or other unforeseen hazard should be incorporated into the HACCP plan".
