Establishment No.: 00824 P

USDA Inspection Report: 13 Jun 2011

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

Citation: On June 13, 2011 at 0640 after the plant had completed pre-operational sanitation and prior to the start of operations I observed the boots used to walk in the ice bin. They were on a plastic bag and there is a grey and black residue on the heel and bottom of the boots about one inch in diameter, with several smaller specs of grey and black residues. An inspection of the ice bin revealed no contaminated ice. A regulatory control action was initiated to restrict use of the boots until corrective action could be performed (Tag # B 18871542). Mr. was informed immediately. The Regulations in Section 416.13(a) states " 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) 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 unsanitary conditions and the adulteration of product." The Regulations in Section 416.13(a) and 416.4(a) have not been met.

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.
