Establishment No.: 00824 P

USDA Inspection Report: 16 Mar 2011

Code: 01B02
Violation: 416.13(a), 416.4(a)

Citation: On March 16, 2011 at 0630 after the plant had completed pre-operational sanitation inspection and prior to the start of operations, I observed the House Inspector's table. There was an old meat residue from the previous days production on the inside edge of the table (product contact zone) about one eighth of an inch wide and three inches long. Also there was a piece of a muscle from the previous days production, about an eighth of an inch in diameter laying on the inside surface of the table. A regulatory control action was initiated to restrict use of the House Inspector's table until corrective action could be performed (Tag # B 39133833). Mr. was 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." The Regulations in Section 416.4(a) state "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 unsanitary conditions and the adulteration of product." The Regulations in Section 416.13(a) and 416.4(a) have not been met.

Regulation:

416.13(a) Each official establishment shall conduct the pre-operational procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s before the start of operations.

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.
