USDA Inspection Report: 30 Jun 2010

Code: 01C02
Violation: 416.14

Citation: At approximately 715 hours I observed a carcass on line [redacted] after the Sanova dip before e the drop area to the chiller with black greasy material on the breast approximately 1.5 inches by 1 inch and also on the right medial thigh of 1 by half inches. I removed the carcass from the line and notified Ms. [redacted] (line leader) she reconditioned the carcass. It was cleaned; trimmed and put back into production.Mr. [redacted] Evis Dept. Supervisor was notified. Also black grease contaminated with rail dust was discussed at USDA-Plant weekly meetings on 05/04/2010. Past similar NR's #035 dated 05/27/2010 and #044 dated 06/16/2010 demonstrate that the Plants corrective actions were ineffective in preventing contamination. The Companies further planned action of reducing the pressure of application of grease to the rail is ineffective to prevent recurrence. This document serves as notification that failure to meet the regulatory requirements may result in additional regulatory or administrative action.


416.14 Each official establishment shall routinely evaluate the effectiveness of the Sanitation SOPís and the procedures therein in preventing direct contamination or adulteration of product(s) and shall revise both as necessary to keep them effective and current with respect to changes in facilities, equipment, utensils, operations, or personnel.
