USDA Inspection Report: 17 May 2011

Code: 03J01
Violation: 417.4(a)(2)(i)

Citation: May 17, 2011 16:27 hours While performing an unscheduled, 03J01, Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) slaughter inspection procedure in the evisceration department, I conducted a test of the chlorine content of the potable water lines supplying the reprocessing sink and the liver harvest station. The establishment's HACCP plan identifies [redacted]. The Critical Limits at these locations are defined as [redacted]. Using the facility's [redacted] that utilizes the [redacted] method to determine total chlorine concentration, I discovered that chlorine was present at zero (0) ppm at both locations. I directed an FSIS on-line Food Inspector to stop the production line and take regulatory control of all activities in the evisceration department. I then immediately apprised the evisceration department's junior manager, Mr. [redacted] of the situation. He confirmed my findings by discovering that the fifty-five (55) gallon barrel containing the source of concentrated sodium hypochlorite solution in the motor room had been allowed to run dry. My discovery indicated that eight (8) locations, relying on the same pump, were without chlorine at this time, six (6) of which are CCPs and two (2) that are required by the United States Code of Federal Regulations, Title 9, Chapter III, Section 381.91(b)(1). After observing that chlorine had been restored to these locations and Mr. [redacted] begin implementing the plant's corrective actions for this scenario, I relinquished regulatory control of the evisceration department at approximately 16:36 hours. This constitutes a failure to comply with the United States Code of Federal Regulations, Title 9, Chapter III, Section 417.4(a)(2)(i). Mr. [redacted] was promptly notified of the noncompliance verbally. Management has been reminded that Federal law requires Federally-inspected facilities to faithfully execute their HACCP plans as written. This document serves as written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements may result in additional regulatory and/or administrative action(s). Past Similar NRs - Previous Ineffective Plant Actions: Failure to monitor with adequate frequency to prevent the complete depletion of the source of sodium hypochlorite solution. NR: 20-2011 dated 5/8/2011


417.4(a)(2)(i) Ongoing verification activities. Ongoing verification activities include, but are not limited to: The calibration of process-monitoring instruments
