Citation:

At 0530 hrs while performing preoperational sanitation inspection in the Fabrication Department the following deficiency was observed: Fat and meat pieces from the previous day's production were observed on the rotating tables of machines 3 and 4. The pieces of meat varied in size from 2 1/2 inches long to 3 inches long, and 1 inch to an 1/2 inch wide. The fat pieces were approximately 1 inch in diameter. There were 5 pieces of meat and numerous pieces of the fat located on these tables. These findings represent non-compliance with 9 CFR 416.4(b), which states " Non-food-contact surfaces, equipment, and utensils used in the operation of the establishment must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and adulteration of product." As corrective measures the establishment discarded the meat scraps to inedible rendering and cleaned the affected surfaces in my presence. After inspecting the area and finding it acceptable, I released the area for production. This deficiency was reported to . A review of the Non-Compliance Record for the last 90 days revealed no similar findings with the same cause.

Regulation:

416.4(b) Non-food-contact surfaces of facilities, equipment, and utensils used in the operation of the establishment must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.
