Citation:

At 1000hrs while performing Sanitation Performance Standards (SPS) procedures the following deficiencies were identified:[newline][newline][newline][newline]Beaded droplets of liquid condensation were observed on the carcass rails and the entire ceiling above rails 48 thru 52 was wet with liquid condensation. Each rail of beef carcasses received an U.S. Reject/ U.S. Retain tag, indicating product was to be held for suitable corrective action to be administered by the establishment. [newline][newline][newline][newline]While I was placing the tags on the first carcass of each rail I observed establishment personnel start to wipe the ceiling above the carcasses. The liquid condensation from the ceiling was falling from the ceiling down towards the carcasses hanging below. [newline][newline][newline][newline]These findings represents Non-Compliance with 9CFR416.2(d), which states, "Ventilation adequate to control odors, vapors, and condensation to the extent necessary to prevent adulteration of product and the creation of insanitary conditions must be provided". [newline][newline][newline][newline]This also represents 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". [newline][newline][newline][newline]These deficiencies were reported to , and .[newline][newline][newline][newline]A review of Non- Compliance records for the last 90 days revealed no similar findings with the same root cause.
