USDA Inspection Report: 26 Jul 2010

Code: 03J01
Violation: 381.65(e), 417.2(c)(4)

Citation: July 26, 2010 08:12 hours While performing Acceptable Quality Limits (AQL) and Finished Product Standards (FPS) assessments of 20, randomly selected, dressed chicken carcasses at the inspection table immediately upstream of the first water submersion chiller, the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) Inspector-In-Charge (IIC), [redacted] discovered a patch of what appeared to be fecal contamination on the interior surface of the caudal portion of the sternum of one carcass. The contamination had an odor consistent with poultry feces and was 3/4-inch by one inch in size, greenish-brown in color, and of a light, sauce-like consistency. Evisceration room manager, Mr. [redacted] was immediately alerted and given the opportunity to conduct his own inspection of the nature of the contamination. Mr. [redacted] concurred with the IIC's findings and, without delay, initiated the establishment's corrective actions for this scenario. FSIS field operations personnel enforce a policy of zero-tolerance for visible fecal contamination on poultry carcasses prior to submersion chilling. The policy is addressed in U.S. Code of Federal Regulations, Title 9, Chapter III, Section 381.65(e) and FSIS Directive 6420.2. The IIC repeated the pre-chill inspection for visible fecal contamination with another randomly selected set of ten, dressed carcasses at 08:43 hours. No visible fecal contamination was observed. This document serves as written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements may result in further regulatory and/or administrative action(s).

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

417.2(c)(4) List the procedures, and the frequency with which those procedures will be performed, that will be used to monitor each of the critical control points to ensure compliance with the critical limits
