USDA Inspection Report: 24 Aug 2010

Code: 01C02
Violation:  416.13(c), 416.14, 416.4(d)

Citation: On August 24, 2010 at 0700 I went into the meat grinding room and observed two plastic tubs of ground beef trimmings that have a white off color (freezer burn) on them. A regulatory control action was initiated to restrict use of the product until corrective action could be performed (Tag # B39161269 and B 36105807). Mr. and Mr. were informed immediately. The Regulations in Section 416.13(c) state "Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP's." The Regulations in Section 416.4(d) state "Product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, storage, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments." The Regulations in Section 416.14 state "Each official establishment shall routinely evaluate the effectiveness of the Sanitation SOP's and the procedures therein in preventing direct contamination or adulteration of product(s) and shall revise both as necessary to keep them effective and current with respect to changes in facilities, equipment, utensils, operations, or personnel."
