JBS Tolleson, Inc.

Address: 651 South 91st Ave., Tolleson, AZ 85353
Establishment No.: 00267 M or M267

USDA Inspection Report: 2 August 2011

Code: 01C02 
Violation:  416.14


While performing a 01C02 operational sanitation procedure, I observed the processing belt in the fabrication department at the west end south side had multiple grease smears directly in the product zone. The area of grease smears ranged in sizes from 10 inches in length and 2 inches in width. I notified ____, and informed him about the grease in the product zone. Mr.____ immediately stopped the chain cleaned and sanitized the belt. No product was affected, once the belt was resanitized, I inspected the area and allowed production to resume. 9 CFR 416.4(a) states that 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 of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product. I notified Mr.____ that I would be issuing an N R to document this Non-Compliance. A review of Non-Compliance record for the last 90 days revealed no similar findings with same root. 


416.14 Maintenance of Sanitation SOP’s.
Each official establishment shall routinely evaluate the effectiveness of the Sanitation SOP’s and the procedures therein in preventing direct contamination or adulteration of product(s) and shall revise both as necessary to keep them effective and current with respect to changes in facilities, equipment, utensils, operations, or personnel.
