USDA Inspection Report: 31 Aug 2011
Citation: On August 31, 2011 at 0640 hour while conducting a pre-operation inspection, I observed the following. (1) There was an one inch meat/feather residue on the surface of the shaft inside the spin picker (Tag#B39036521); (2) There was a dead fly on top of the grading table (Tag#B39036522); and (3) there was a dead fly on the edge of the roller (where the ducks come out) of the shrinker (Tag#B39036523). U. S. Reject Tags were applied to restrict the use of these equipments until corrective action could be performed. Mr. was informed immediately. No products were involved. Regulations 416.13 (a) state "Each official establishment shall conduct the pre-operational procedures in the Sanitation SOP's before the start of the operations." Regulation 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." Regulation 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.
