USDA Inspection Report: 17 Aug 2010
Citation: On this date at approximately 1000 hours I was touring the Boning room when I saw hearts, livers and lungs in blue colored plastic tubs marked "EDIBLE" and "INEDIBLE" sitting on a portable rack. Being that lungs are an inedible item I showed the non-compliance with 9 CFR 416.2(b)(4) to both _ and _ .No further regulatory action was required because the tubs were all emptied to the rendering and then the lugs were all sent to the maintenance shop to have "INEDIBLE" printed on them. Past Similar NRs - Previous Ineffective Plant Actions: Reminded employees and cleaning crew that blue tubs are for EDIBLE in the boning room. The grey tubs are for the kill floor NR: 4-2010 dated 2/23/2010
416.2(b)(4) Rooms or compartments in which edible product is processed, handled, or stored must be separate and distinct from rooms or compartments in which inedible product is processed, handled, or stored, to the extent necessary to prevent product adulteration and the creation of insanitary conditions.
