Establishment No.: m8768
USDA Inspection Report: 10 Aug 2011
Citation: Approximately 1100 hrs I conducted a SSOP records review for operational sanitation activities conducted by plant personnel for the previous day's slaughter operations. My inspection resulted in the following noncompliance being observed and documented with the writing of this NR.[newline] It was determined that no operational sanitation records had been produced by the establishment for official operations conducted on Tuesday, Aug. 9th. The last documented entry noted the SSOP forms was on Aug.5th in which custom exempt operations took place.[newline] Mr. was informed of my observation of the lack of SSOP operational documentation. Est. 8768 SSOP, dated Jan. 2, 2004 states that [redacted].[newline] The above noncompliance represents a failure by plant personnel in the execution of documentation activities as written in the establishment SSOP Plan also failing to meet the regulatory requirements outlined in 9 CFR 416.16(a).[newline] A review of the Noncompliance Record File in the government office did not show any NR documentation of similar root cause within the 2011 calendar year.[newline] [newline]
416.16(a) Each official establishment shall maintain daily records sufficient to document the implementation and monitoring of the Sanitation SOP’s and any corrective actions taken. The establishment employee(s) specified in the Sanitation SOP’s as being responsible for the implementation and monitoring of the procedure(s) specified in the Sanitation SOP’s shall authenticate these records with his or her initials and the date.
