Citation: 381.76(b) At 0801 hrs I completed a Finished Product Standards Test on a randomly selected 10 bird sample taken from Line # [redacted] at the Prechill Testing location in the Evisceration Department. The subgroup total for this test was [redacted] which exceeds the subgroup absolute limit of 30. I notified a line leader and a QA technician who then immediately conducted a retest. The score for this retest was [redacted] which exceeds tolerance of [redacted] At this point the process was judged to be not in control, and [redacted] was notified of the noncompliance. Two consecutive passing retests were conducted at 0820 and 0830 hrs and passed with scores of [redacted] respectively. Postchill testing using prechill criteria began at 0823 hrs in the Chilling Department, was repeated every 30 minutes until 0954 hrs, and all test results were below tolerance, therefore no product was held for rework.
