USDA Inspection Report: 24 Sep 2010

Code: 03F02
Violation: 417.5(a)(1), 417.5(a)(2)

Citation: While conducting the FSA (Food Safety Assessment) from 07/26/10 through 09/21/10, the following Non-compliances were observed for ISP 03F02 by EIAO Dr. [redacted] The firm has no support for the frequency of direct observation of monitoring or record review for CCP-1B or CCP-2B (HACCP-011 Pg 9-11). This is noncompliant with 9 CFR 417.5 (a) (2). The firm does not have adequate supporting documentation for CCP 1B (direct acidification) in the beef snack stick process (HACCP-011 Pg 9 & 11). They are using the "[redacted]" to support [redacted] and [redacted] to support [redacted], however, neither of these documents contains information to support that their process for producing the snack sticks will inhibit the growth of Listeria monocytogenes after the initial thermal process. The typical water activity of beef snack sticks is around 0.92-0.95, and a product with this Aw and a pH of 5.0-5.3 typically meets the criteria for an antimicrobial process that effectively inhibits Listeria monocytogenes. Even though this firm's process for acidification brings the pH to below 4.5, they still need documentation that measuring the pH without also having data about the Aw can be supported scientifically, or data needs to be collected about the Aw of the product. This is noncompliant with 9 CFR 417.5 (a) (1). Review of past Non-compliances did not show any with same cause in the past 3 months.


417.5(a)(1) The establishment shall maintain the following records documenting the establishment’s HACCP plan: The written hazard analysis prescribed in § 417.2(a) of this part, including all supporting documentation;

417.5(a)(2) The written HACCP plan, including decisionmaking documents associated with the selection and development of CCP’s and critical limits, and documents supporting both the monitoring and verification procedures selected and the frequency of those procedures.
