Rework procedures for failed lots:
Food Safety (FPS-FS) defects or other carcass (FPS-OC) defects

The CFIA shall be notified when any lot rework procedure is scheduled to occur.

Lot verification testing section 11.1:

Note:
The lot verification testing option can only be used when a failure occurred in Reduced or Normal mode for FPS-FS I. If the failure occurred in Tightened mode, lot rework and evaluation must be implemented.

  1. Determine the lot size and identify/segregate in accordance with the HIP policy.
  2. Utilize the random sampling procedure in accordance with the HIP policy to select the appropriate number of carcasses from the lot for verification testing. If the defect that caused the failure is not detected (OC defect that caused the failure or any zero tolerance defects), release the lot. If the defect is detected the entire lot associated with the initial FPS test failure will have to be reworked.
  3. Rework and testing procedures continue until the lot passes.

Lot rework and evaluation section 11.2.1:

In cooler rework

  1. Rework every carcass in the lot for the defect(s) that produced the failure.
  2. Utilize the random sampling procedure in accordance with the HIP policy to select the appropriate number of carcasses from the reworked lot for test. If the defect that caused the failure is not detected (OC defect that caused the failure or any zero tolerance defects), release the lot. If the defect is detected redo rework and test until the lot passes.

Online cooler rework section 11.2.2:

  1. Rework every carcass in the lot for the defect(s) that produced the failure (OC defect that caused the failure or any zero tolerance defects).
  2. Every reworked carcass shall be immediately re-examined by an accredited employee located at an approved on line verification station. Any defects found shall be immediately removed prior to the release of the carcass for further processing or shipping.
