Establishment No.: 00824 P

USDA Inspection Report: 1 Sep 2011

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

Citation: On September 1, 2011, at 0645 hour after the plant had finished pre-operational sanitation inspection and prior to the start of operations, I observed bag vacuum nozzles (four of them). All of the four vacuum nozzles have quite a few pieces of meat residue built up inside. Cleaning procedure of the nozzles, outlined in establishment's SSOP#11 Packing Operation, apparently were not properly followed. An U. S. Reject Tag (#B39036519) was applied to restrict the use of these nozzles until corrective action could be performed. Mr. was immediately notified. No products were involved. 416.13 (c): Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the sanitation sop. Regulation 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 unsanitary conditions and the adulteration of product." Regulation 416.13 (c) and 416.4 (a) have not been met.
