USDA Inspection Report: 13 Jan 2012

Code: 03J04
Violation: 381.65(e)

Citation: At approximately 1626 hours, while I was performing my Poultry Zero Tolerance Verification task, I observed one of my ten carcass sample to be contaminated with fecal material. The green pasty material was approximately 1/8" dia. and on the tail cavity, where the oil gland had been removed. I informed [redacted] (Evis Supervisor) of this noncompliance. The Slaughter HACCP procedure, including corrective actions, was initiated immediately, therefore regulatory control was not required. The last zero tolerance check had been perform at 1602 hours, by the HACCP technician and was in compliance. A retest was taken at 1629 hours and was in compliance.


381.65(e) Poultry carcasses contaminated with visible fecal material shall be prevented from entering the chilling tank.
