Establishment No.: m4532
USDA Inspection Report: 14 Jul 2011
Citation: At approximately 0725 while inspecting the carcass holding cooler, I noticed 4 aluminum trays of unwrapped beef cuts from the previous day's production, being stored on the stainless steel shelving unit located in this cooler. 2 beef shank soup bones had fallen off one tray and were lying on the shelf. Also one netted sirloin tip roast was touching a cardboard box which was also being stored on the same shelving unit. This is a violation of 9cfr 416.4(d). was verbally notified of the situation, and a regulatory control action was taken by placing a U.S. RETAINED TAG numbered 766782 on the shelving unit. This non-compliance could not be linked to any previous non-compliance.
416.4(d) Product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, storage, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments.
