Citation: At 0605, the slaughter process was released by [redacted] Slaughter/Evisceration Quality Control Team Member, for PreOp SSOP Review and Observation. While inspecting the hock cutter and moving toward the vent cutting station in the evisceration room, I saw a very large horsefly, recognized by its blue-green tinted wings and large size. I captured the horsefly and gave it to [redacted] Third Shift Sanitation Manager, who then showed it to [redacted] before disposing of it. Both Ms. [redacted] and Mr. [redacted] were notified verbally of this noncompliance. No product was involved and no other pests were observed during PreOp SSOP Review and Observation.
