USDA Inspection Report: 24 Sep 2010
Citation: On 09/24/10 at approximately 1500 hours the following noncompliance was observed. The knife sanitizer on the wall after the eviscerating station that is used for knifes and to sanitize the steam vacuum was not holding a temperature of degrees as stated in the plants SSOP plan. I checked the water temperature and it was at 130 degrees.This station is before the final wash and antimicrobial spray. I told the employees to stop using the sanitizer until could address the problem. I informed of the situation and told him he was in noncompliance of 9CFR 416.4(d) and the plants own SSOP plan. This document serves as written notice that failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in further regulatory action. As always you have the right to appeal.
