USDA Inspection Report: 16 Feb 2012

Code: 06D02
Violation: 381.76(b)

Citation: On February 16th, 2012, at approximately 1146 hours, I performed a presentation verification task at the second inspection station. At a line speed of [redacted] birds per minute (bpm), presentation failed with a 10 bird nonconformance weight of 31. This failure consisted of 2 contamination on viscera (6 nonconformance factors each), 2 membrane (2 nonconformance factors each), 2 opening cuts (1 nonconformance factor each), 1 parts inside (1 nonconformance factor each), and 2 contamination inside bird (6 nonconformance factors each). I immediately notified (1st Processing Manager) of my findings, I also requested that QA perform presentation retests. QA failed the retest at 1158 and the line speed was reduced to [redacted] bpm. Establishment management has received oral and written notification concerning this non-compliance. Continued failure to meet regulatory requirements can lead to additional enforcement actions as described in 9 CFR Part 500.


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.
