Citation: On July 7, 2011 at 0820 after the plant had completed pre-operational sanitation inspection and prior to the start of operations I observed the brisket saw. There was a brown residue from the previous day 's operation at the base of the blade, on the blade, and on the housing about a half inch in diameter and also some smaller specs on the tip of the blade. A regulatory control action was initiated to restrict use of the brisket saw until corrective action could be implemented (Tag # B 21 179835). Mr. was informed immediately. The Regulations in Section 416.13(a) states "Each official establishment shall conduct the pre-operational procedures in the Sanitation SOP's before the start of operations." The Regulations in Section 416.4(a) states "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 unsanitary conditions and the adulteration of product." The Regulations in Section 416.13(a) and 416.4(a) have not been met.
