USDA Inspection Report: 12 Aug 2010

Code: 06D02
Violation: 381.76(b)

Citation: On 8/12/2010, at approximately 0635 hours, I performed presentation verification (ISP code 06D02) at the first inspection station. At a line speed of [redacted] birds per minute (bpm), presentation failed with a 10-bird total nonconformance weight of [redacted] This failure consisted of 1 no viscera (20 nonconformance factors) and 4 contamination inside bird (6 nonconformance factors each). I immediately notified , Evisceration Lead, that a NR would be issued for the establishment's failure to meet regulatory requirements and that the evisceration line speed must be reduced to [redacted] bpm (a [redacted] bpm reduction). I also requested that QA perform presentation retests. QA presentation retests failed at [redacted] bpm, failed at [redacted] bpm, passed at [redacted] bpm, passed at [redacted] bpm, passed at [redacted] bpm, failed at [redacted] bpm, passed at [redacted] bpm, passed at [redacted] bpm, passed at [redacted] bpm, passed at [redacted] bpm, and passed at [redacted] bpm. Establishment management have received oral and written communication concerning this noncompliance. Past Similar NRs - Previous Ineffective Plant Actions: "Employee that failed was our newest employee to learn how to present the birds. He will be given further instruction as to what the errors are when someone is performing a presentation test. When this is completed he will sign off stating that he did receive this training." NR: 40-2010 dated 7/13/2010 the previous preventive measure was either not implemented or was ineffective in preventing the recurrence of this noncompliance.


381.76(b) Presentation: Each inspector shall be flanked by an establishment employee assigned to be the inspector’s helper. The one inspector on the SIS–1 line shall be presented every bird. Each inspector on the SIS–2 line shall be presented every other bird on the line. An establishment employee shall present each bird to the inspector properly eviscerated with the back side toward the inspector and the viscera uniformly trailing or leading. Each inspector shall inspect the inside, viscera, and outside of all birds presented.
