Violation: 416.13(b), 416.13(c), 416.4(d)

Citation: At 1901 hours, while the eviseration department Lines and were going through midshift cleanup and Lines the savage station, and the Gizzard Table were still in operation, I observed debris from Lines and being sprayed into a salvaged product tote of breasts and then into a salvaged product tote of leg quarters (from different directions), adulterating the breasts and the leg quarters. This is a noncompliance with 9CFR416.4d. I took a regulatory control action (9CFR500) by applying US Retain tag #B21-187721 retaining adulterated product (Breasts) and US Retain tag #B21-187722 retaining adulterated product (Leg Quarters). I notified Supervisor and Supervisor Robert Tull of the noncompliance, that product integrity was impacted, and of my action. Supervisor Chambers proceeded with corrective action for the adulterated product. Regulatory control was released at 1930 hours. This document serves as written notification to Ms. (Plant Manager) of the noncompliance with 9CFR416.1, 416.13(b), and 416.13(c). Continued failure to meet regulatory requirements could result in additional regulatory action per 9CFR500.4
