USDA Inspection Report: 28 Sep 2011

Code: 03J02
Violation: 417.4(a)(2)(ii), 417.4(a)(2)(iii), 417.5(a)(3), 417.5(b), 417.5(c)

Citation: At approximately 1500 hours, at Estab 21554, while performing a Slaughter HACCP task, I observed the following Noncompliance’s with the slaughter records regarding the plants Slaughter HACCP Plan (GCC-HACCP-001 pg 1-15).

The Wash Report Form GCC-HACCP-005 containing CCP2 was incomplete. There was no direct observation recorded for 09/26/11.
There also was no record review performed for records dated 09/26/11.

Further, the Carcass Chill Report Form GCC-PRG-003 for animals killed 9/26/11 was not [redacted] as outlined in the Carcass Chill Prerequisite Program (GCC-PRG-008 pg 1-2). The initial carcass hot temperatures were recorded, but there were no carcass chill temperatures recorded within 24 hours to verify carcasses were adequately chilled.

I notified slaughter employee [redacted] and he immediately went to the holding cooler and took the chill temperatures on the largest carcass listed on the slaughter form weighing 1100 lbs.. The temperatures were [redacted] (surface), [redacted] (round), and [redacted] (chuck) at approximately 3:00pm. The initial temperatures were recorded at 11:45 am. the previous day. The Establishment prerequisite program states that [redacted].

Further, the Pre-shipment Review was signed on the Slaughter Zero Tolerance form GCC-HACCP-004 for date 09/26/11 even though the reports listed above were incomplete and ongoing verification procedures were not performed.

No regulatory control action was taken at this time because CCPs were under control and temperature verification indicated that product was not compromised.

The above are in noncompliance with 9CFR 417.4(a) (2) (ii), 417.4(a) (2) (iii), 417.5(a) (3), 417.5(b), and 417.5(c).

Review of past noncompliance did not show any with the same cause in the past 3 months.

Management Mr.[redacted] Establishment owner was notified of the above NonCompliance.

417.4(a)(2)(iii) The review of records generated and maintained in accordance with § 417.5(a)(3) of this part.

417.5(a)(3) Records documenting the monitoring of CCP’s and their critical limits, including the recording of actual times, temperatures, or other quantifiable values, as prescribed in the establishment’s HACCP plan; the calibration of process-monitoring instruments; corrective actions, including all actions taken in response to a deviation; verification procedures and results; product code(s), product name or identity, or slaughter production lot. Each of these records shall include the date the record was made.

417.5(b) Each entry on a record maintained under the HACCP plan shall be made at the time the specific event occurs and include the date and time recorded, and shall be signed or initialed by the establishment employee making the entry.
