Establishment No.: m8547
USDA Inspection Report: 12 Apr 2011
Violation: 416.13(c), 416.4(d)
Citation: On 4/12/11 at approximately 1500 hours while performing a 01C02 procedure the following noncompliance was observed. The knife sanitizer at the sink in the blood pit was not at degrees as stated in the plants SSOP plan. I checked the temperature and the thermometer read 125 degrees. I told the employee working in the blood pit, not to use the sanitizer until it gets fixed. I informed of my findings. This is a noncompliance of 9 CFR 416.13(c) and 416.4(d) and the plants own SSOP 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.
416.13(c) Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s.
416.4(d) Product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, storage, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments.
