USDA Inspection Report: 4 Nov 2010

Code: 01B02
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.

Regulation:

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.
