Citation: On 3/25/11 at approximately 1445 hours the following noncompliance was observed. The knife sanitizer next to the sink at the head station was not at degrees as stated in the plants SSOP plan. I checked the temperature and it was 140 degrees, This is a noncompliance of 9CFR 416.4(d) and the plants own SSOP plan. I informed of my finding and told the employees that might use the knife sanitizer at this station not to use it until it was fixed.
