JBS Tolleson, Inc.

Address: 651 South 91st Ave., Tolleson, AZ 85353
Establishment No.: 00267 M or M267

USDA Inspection Report: 17 May 2012

Code:  01C02
Violation:  416.13(c), 416.4(a), 416.4(b)

Citation:

416.13(c), 416.14 While observing the establishments in process cleaning of transport barrels for edible product, I observed the following noncompliance: Barrels are cleaned and stored in an area adjacent to the entrance to the stimulator and During my inspection of the cleaned barrels, I observed several white barrels with blood stained hand prints around the rim, blood spots inside the barrels and large amounts of discolored water remaining at the bottom of many of the inspected barrels. Industry conducted research has demonstrated that containers and receptive tools can be a major source of microbial contamination and cross contamination when they are miss handled by processing employees. At 13:05 I informed of the improperly cleaned barrels and that a noncompliance record would be issued. After reviewing the noncompliance records for the last 90 days, no additional noncompliances were issued involving the same root cause.

Regulation:

416.13(c)  Implementation of SOP's: Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOPís.

416.4(a)  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 the adulteration of product.

416.4(b)  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.
