USDA Inspection Report: 9 Sep 2010
Citation: On September 9, 2010 at 0645 after the plant had performed pre-operational sanitation inspection and prior to the start of operations I observed the head racks for the beef (FCS). There were many blood spots on the rack about one fourth of an inch in diameter and several hairs. A regulatory control action was initiated to restrict use of the racks until corrective action could be performed (Tag # B 24791175). Mr. was informed immediately. The Regulations in Section 416.13(a) state "Each official establishment shall conduct the pre-operational procedures in the Sanitation SOP's before the start of operations." The Regulations in Section 416. 13(a) have not been met.
