Citation:

At 0545 hrs while performing PBIS task 06D01 the following deficiencies were identified: Beaded droplets of condensation were observed on the ceiling of the pack off area above machine #4, and encompassing an area 10 feet around the machine. The beads of condensation were observed falling from the ceiling to the floor and landing on one of the skinning machines. Product was not present in the area at the time. The area was taped off to stop foot traffic thru the area, and mpd tag # B38567993 was placed on the tape securing the area. These finding represent non-compliance with 9CFR 416.2(d), which states "Ventilation adequate to control odor, vapors, and condensation to the extent necessary to prevent adulteration of product and the creation of insanitary conditions must be provided." These findings also represent non-compliance with 9CFR 416.4(d), which states, " Product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments." As corrective measures the establishment wiped and dried the affected area, rinsed the skinning machine with 180 degree water and sanitized the machine in my presence. After inspecting the area and finding the area acceptable, I released the area for production at 0605 hrs. This Non-Compliance was reported to ) and ). A review of the Non-Compliance Record for the last 90 days revealed no similar findings with the same root cause.
