At 0515hrs while performing Pre-Operational Sanitation in the Fabrication Department the following Non-Compliance was observed:The Kidney Fat Removal device had a fat buildup from the prior days production smeared on it. The fat that coated the contact surfaces was approxiamately a 1/8th inch to 1/4th inch in thickness and 1 inch in length and wrapped completely the device. The handle of the device was also covered in smeared fat.This devices was cleaned and sanitized in my presence, and after I re-inspected the device and finding the sanitation of the device satifactory, it was released for use in production.While inspecting the In-N- Out room the sink, sanitizer #19, and Meat Wash Station were identified as being dirty. The sink and Meat Wash Station had pieces of fat and a small black particulate matter on their surfaces. Sanitizer #19 had cold water in it from the prior days production. the water was purple in appearance and rust was affixed to the inside of the sanitizer.The sink and the Meat Wash Station were scrubbed and sanitized in my presence. The water was dumped out of the sanitizer, and the rust was scrubbed off the inside of the sanitizer. After re-inspecting the area, and finding the the area acceptable it was released for use in production.This represents Non-Compliance with 9CFR 416.4(a), which states, "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 adulteration of product".This also represents Non-Compliance with 9CFR 416.4(b), which states, "Non-food-contact surfaces of facilities, equipment, and utensils used in the operation of the establishment must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product".Finally, this also represents Non_Compliance with 9 CFR 416.13(c), which states, "Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP's" was notified of this Non-Compliance Report.
