The product chain was stopped immediately to have the droplets removed from the beam. Product that had passed underneath the beamhad already been packaged/bagged, this product was removed from the packaging line. The cooling unit above the Offal product scale had beaded droplets of liquid on the drip pan and on the pipe that exits the drip pan.An establishment employee wiped/dried the drip pan and pipe. After reinspecting the beam and drip pan and finding them both acceptable the Offal product chain was released to be used for production.
