Three out of four of the stainless steel pillars next to rail 32 had product residue and/or fat smears on them. Since the rail hadn't been used this morning the small pieces of fat and fat smear had to be from the prior days production. The was re-cleaned and sanitized in my presence.

The pillars were also re-cleaned and sanitized.
