USDA Inspection Report: 29 Mar 2012

Code: 04A06
Violation: 381.65(a)

Citation: At about 11:50 hrs I reviewed the general operations on the evisceration floor because there was a heavy incidence of airsacculitis. I monitored the on-line reprocessing for airsacculitis by selecting and checking the birds marked for airsacculitis (split tails) on-line after the Final Washer. I inspected approximately 50 birds and found about 10 birds with kidneys and one with IP not completely trimmed. Since the process of on-line reprocessing for airsacculitis was out of control, I immediately stopped the line. I informed General Production Manager, of the noncompliance with 9 CFR 381.65(a) which requires that, "Operations and procedures involving the processing, other handling, or storing of any poultry product must be strictly in accord with clean and sanitary practices and must be conducted in a manner that will result in sanitary processing, proper inspection, and the production of poultry and poultry products that are not adulterated." Once all the necessary arrangements for correcting the process including additional staffing were in place, the line was released after about 3 minutes. I rechecked the process 10 minutes later and observed that the process was completely under control.

Regulation:

381.65(a) Operations and procedures involving the processing, other handling, or storing of any poultry product must be strictly in accord with clean and sanitary practices and must be conducted in a manner that will result in sanitary processing, proper inspection, and the production of poultry and poultry products that are not adulterated.
