USDA Inspection Report: 17 Oct 2011
Violation: 416.13(a), 416.4(a), 416.4(b)
Citation: Beginning at 0700 hrs while performing pre-operational inspection I observed the following non-compliances. In the processing room I found several chunks of meat and fat particles on the inside door and the inside box on the lower portion of the band saw (non-contact). I also found approximately 28 grey totes with product particles and product residue on the insides and outsides of the grey totes. (contact) There were also pieces of meat on the 3 carts holding the grey totes (non-contact). U.S. Reject tags NO. B39879001 and B39879002. There was also a set of knives and the scabbard holding them that had meat stuck to them (contact). U.S. Reject tag NO. B39879003 was applied to the knives and scabbard. After informing the plant employee of the non-compliances he proceeded to re-clean the grey totes and the carts so U.S. Reject tags NO. B39879001 and B39879002 were removed. The scabbard and knives have remained tagged beacause they have not been recleaned. Once the scabbard and knives are re-cleaned they will be released back to the establishment. This document serves as notice of non-compliance within Federal Regulations 9 CFR 416.4(a), 416.4(b) and 416.13(b).
