Violation: 417.5(c)

Citation: While conducting a HACCP Slaughter Task the following non-compliance was found: The Establishments Pre-Shipment Review Form was incorrectly dated to show 4/13/2012, and there was no signature or time anywhere on the form.  verbally notified me that he had performed a pre-shipment review, and because of the busy holiday season (Easter) he had made clerical error, and that the correct date of the form should have been 4/3/2012. A pre-shipment review was not documented for this lot of production. The product is no longer on site or in the establishment and rsquo's control; therefore non-compliance of 9 CFR417.5(c) exists.

Where practicable, this review shall be conducted, dated, and signed by an individual who did not produce the record(s), preferably by someone trained in accordance with 417.7 of this part, or the responsible establishment official.
