Citation: On August 17, 2010 at 0635 after the plant had performed pre-operational sanitation inspection and prior to the start of operations I observed the Wax Reclaim Tank. Inside the tank were about 20 feathers, a brown residue on the inside bottom, and some old wax from the previous days operation. A regulatory control action was initiated to restrict use of the tank until corrective action could be performed (Tag # B 24791394). Mr. and Mr. were verbally informed immediately. The Regulations in Section 416.13(a) state "Each official establishment shall conduct the pre-operational procedures in the Sanitation SOP's before the start of operations."
