While performing a Operational SSOP review and observation, I notice white and blue barrels staged outside in the offal hallway for use in production. During my observation I notice at the bottom and underneath between the black transport module of the white and blue barrels there were multiple pieces of fat ranging in different sizes from 1/8 of an inch to a 1/4 of an inch. After removing the white barrel from the black transport module,the underside of the white barrels were covered with blood. I notified and cleaning . The cleaning crew recleaned and sanitized the barrels and the modules. I reinspected the barrels and modules and release them to production.[newline]Later I informed the that the company would be receiving this non compliance.[newline]During a review of non compliance records written in the last 90 days, no NR's were with the same root cause.
