Establishment No.: m4488

USDA Inspection Report: 24 Jun 2010

Code: 03J02
Violation: 417.3(c), 417.5(c)

Citation: Upon reviewing the responses that you provided for NR#0053-2010-12907 and NR#0052-2010-12907, it states "For a period of one week daily direct observations will be conducted by two employees including two initials on the direct observation of CCP 1 and CCP 2. Also for the same one week period two employees will sign the pre-shipment review." I have found the following noncompliance's on Slaughter Inspection Reports dated June 23, June 22, and on June 21 there is only one person signing the pre-shipment review ([redacted]) and on June 21, only one person is documented as performing the direct observation of CCP 1 & 2. ([redacted]) Also on the SRM Removal Records and SRM Identification Records dated June 22, there is only one person that performed the pre-shipment review on June 22. [redacted], Plant Manager has been informed of these noncompliance's in both writing and orally. This document serves as a written notification that failure to comply with regulations could result in further regulatory and or administrative actions. Past Similar NRs - Previous Ineffective Plant Actions: This noncompliance is still open at this time. Response that was unacceptable : " pre-shipment review will be signed off at the end of slaughter, as too when carcasses are shipped." NR: 56-2010 dated 6/17/2010 NR 52-2010 & NR 53-2010 were written for the lack of documentation for pre-shipment reviews, and direct obsersavations.


417.3(c) All corrective actions taken in accordance with this section shall be documented in records that are subject to verification in accordance with 417.4(a)(2)(iii) and the recordkeeping requirements of 417.5 of this part.

417.5(c) Prior to shipping product, the establishment shall review the records associated with the production of that product, documented in accordance with this section, to ensure completeness, including the determination that all critical limits were met and, if appropriate, corrective actions were taken, including the proper disposition of product. 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.
