Establishment No.: p17966

USDA Inspection Report: 27 Sep 2011

Code: 03J01
Violation:  417.2(c)(4)

Citation: At approximately 0745 hours, while performing the review and observation component of an unscheduled 03J01 procedure task I observed the following at CCP #2B (Carcass Wash). Of the 10 randomly selected whole duck carcasses on the processing table subsequent the Carcass Wash step, one whole duck carcass has an approximate 1/2" X 2 1/2" fecal smear in its greatest dimension on the outside lower portion of the abdominal flap (skin). The fecal smear observed is of a darkish green color that is consistent with a semi-solid material. The establishment records indicate that the monitoring and direct observation (verification) of CCP# 2B were not performed prior to or at the time of the findings. I immediately notified Production Supervisor, verbally of the non-compliance and at this time corrective actions were immediately initiated by the establishment, on the whole duck carcass. The establishments Slaughter HACCP plan signed and dated 01/20/11, Section 4: Critical Limits, Monitoring and Corrective Actions, page 2 under Critical Limits states: "[redacted]", and under Monitoring Procedures/ Frequency states: "[redacted]" This is a failure to meet: 9CFR 417.2(c)(4) The 02 process will be performed.


417.2(c)(4) List the procedures, and the frequency with which those procedures will be performed, that will be used to monitor each of the critical control points to ensure compliance with the critical limits
