At 0640 while performing preoperational sanitation in the Harvest Floor Department the following deficiencies were observed: Fat, blood, and product residue from the prior days production on the front frame work of the spinal cord vacuum stand, the front frame work of the spinal cord saw stand, and on the splash guard that protects the low light on the final rail inspection stand. These surfaces are food contact surfaces. These finding represent non-compliance with 9 CFR 416.4(a), which states " all food contact surfaces, including food contact surfaces of utensils and equipment must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation on insanitary conditions and the adulteration of the product." It also represents an SSOP failure, as per 9 CFR 416.13(c), which states "Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP." These deficiencies were reported to ). was also verbally notified of this Non-Compliance Report. As a corrective measure the establishment cleaned and sanitized the affected surfaces in my presence. After re-inspecting the surfaces and finding them acceptable, I released the area for production.
