Establishment No.: m8547
USDA Inspection Report: 15 Dec 2010
Violation: 416.4(a), 416.4(b)
Citation: On 12/15/2010 at approximately 0815 hours requested USDA to perform pre- operational inspection and the following noncompliance was observed. The pull down handle at the tailing station had brown crusty build up from the day before. There were fat particles on the wall above the scale read out and fat residue in the split saw from the previous days production. I showed my findings and he addressed the issues as I pointed them out. This is a noncompliance of 9CFR 416.4(a) and 416.4(b) and the plants own plan. This document serves as written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in further regulatory action. As always you have the right to appeal.
