Code: 04C04
Violation: 381.76(b)

Citation: At 2145 hrs, I performed a prechill finished products test on evisceration line # [redacted] and obtained a subgroup total of 29 for trim nonconformances which exceeded the absolute limit. QA's retest at 2155 hrs scored 24 which exceeded tolerance. Thus the process was judged out of control as dictated by regulation. Evisceration Supervisor [redacted] was notified. Corrective actions were put into effect. The line speed was reduced to [redacted] birds per minute and additional trimmers were stationed on the lines. The QA technician performed prechill retests at 2209 hrs and 2217 hrs with subgroup totals of 10 and 12 respectively which were within tolerance. Postchill testing was conducted at 2216 hrs, 2246 hrs, 2316 hrs, and 2346 hrs with subgroup totals of 3, 6 , 8, and 11, respectively. No product was retained. This document serves as written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirements may result in additional regulatory or administrative action. Past Similar NRs - Previous Ineffective Plant Actions: Additional trimmers were placed on the lines. NR: 5-2011 dated 1/7/2011
