Citation: At approximately 1903 hours, I was performing a prechill finished standards test for Line # [redacted] I had a subgroup total of 22 on the page with the trim noncomformances, which exceeds the subgroup limit of 17. I notified the QA technician that retest was needed for Line # [redacted] I then notified [redacted] (Evis supervisor) of the noncompliance. The QA technician performed a retest at 1915 hours and failed with a subgroup total of 13, which exceeds the tolerance total of 12. The postchill with prechill criteria was not performed immediately due to chilling department being on their lunch break. The Evis QA technician did a retest at 1933 hours and passed with a subgroup total of 11. Then another retest at 1939 hours and passed with a subgroup total of 10.
