Violation: 416.13(c), 416.4(a)
Citation: 0720 hours - After notification from Plant Manager that plant personnel had completed their morning pre-operational sanitation checks, I informed him that I would be conducting a pre - op inspection prior to the start of slaughter operations. The following noncompliant condition was observed and documented as a result of this inspection. Wellsaw was found to be in an unsanitary condition (food contact surface)- meat/fat/bone residues present from previous use. Residue found on blade, piston and motor housing - rejected of use - US Reject Tag B21197174 issued. Mr. was present during my inspection visually observing my findings. I informed of the rejection of the saw and need for corrective action as per 9 CFR 416.15. The above noncompliance represents a failure to meet the monitoring aspect of your SSOP Plan, dated 01/23/2007 as written on Page 9 -1, part 1.A, as well as not meeting the regulatory requirements of 9 CFR 416.13(c). At time of this inspection no entries had yet been entered on the Sanitation Checklist for pre-op this date. A review of the Noncompliance Record file in the gov't showed no similar noncompliance within the past 90 days.
416.13(c) Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s.
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 insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.
