Citation: On October 5th, 2010 while conducting pre-operational procedures at 0646 hours the following non-compliance was observed on the neck splitting gun located to the left of the giblet table. This equipment had a residue adhered to it that was greasy to the touch, it was dark grey to black in color. This equipment is a product contact surface, although no product was involved at this time. A USDA reject tag was applied no. B34 488572. , floor manager was immediately notified. His immediate reaction was to disconnect gun and sanitize. In reviewing the pre-operational records this equipment had been deemed acceptable. Upon USDA re-inspection of equipment it appeared to be sanitized, USDA tag was then removed by me and equipment passed and released. 9CFR 416.13(c) states...Procedures in the sanitation SOP's that are to be conducted prior to operations shall be identified as such, and shall address, at a minimum, the cleaning of food contact surfaces of facilities, equipment, and utensils.
