Empire Kosher Poultry
Address: 1 River Rd, Juniata Cty, Mifflintown, PA 17059
Establishment No.: p1015
USDA Inspection Report: 4 Apr 2012
Violation: 417.2(c), 417.2(c)(4)
Citation: While performing a slaughter HACCP task on April 4, 2012, I observed the following noncompliance in the chicken HACCP plan. CCP#2 - PAA and CCP#2B - [redacted] do not list the critical limit for application of the antimicrobial. The establishment is monitoring for adequate spray application to verify the rinse is on the entire carcass and/or parts. However, no critical limit has not been documented to be monitored. Therefore, the establishment is in noncompliance with 9 CFR 417.2(c)(3). The two CCP's do not list the frequency of the monitoring procedures on spray application. The CCP's also do not state how the testing is performed. It is stated that approved testing equipment is used but there are no procedures written. CCP#2 - PAA also does not list what is being monitored. The establishment is in noncompliance with 9 CFR 417.2(c)(4).
417.2(c) Light. Lighting of good quality and sufficient intensity to ensure that sanitary conditions are maintained and that product is not adulterated must be provided in areas where food is processed, handled, stored, or examined; where equipment and utensils are cleaned; and in hand-washing areas, dressing and locker rooms, and toilets.
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;
