Establishment No.: m4488
USDA Inspection Report: 1 Jul 2010
Violation: 416.2(b)(1), 416.2(b)(2), 416.3(a)
Citation: On July 1, 2010 at approximately 0730 I was asked by Kill Floor Supervisor/HACCP Manager to perform pre-operational sanitation. Upon doing so, I checked the SSOP Records and didn't see any deviations mentioned. While performing 01B02, I found the following noncompliance's on the small animal slaughter floor: The first, second and third rails upon entering the main entrance, both had a rusty film buildup on them. On the first rail, one of the support beams, also had a rusty film buildup. I took regulatory control action and placed US Reject tag # B19114138 to the floor, because the first and second rails are the primary rails that product are on daily. , Plant Manager has been informed of these noncompliance's in both writing and orally. This document serves as a written notification that failure to comply with regulations could result in further regulatory and or administrative actions.
