Citation: At approximately 0815 while performing a Pre-Operational Sanitation Inspection of the slaughter area, the following noncompliances were observed. Directly below the head chute of the knocking box there is a piece of tile block that has broken free. This is exposing open areas inside of the blocks that are still in place that have accumulated fat and debris from a previous days slaughter. In addition, the green/brown cold water hose adjacent to the head rack had a brown slime on the inside portion closest to the wall. Mr. [redacted] was immediately notified about these conditions. The areas in question were cleaned, sanitized, and rinsed before the start of slaughter for today. These conditions are noncompliances of regulations 416.4(b), 416.2(b)(2), and 416.1. Mr. [redacted] is advised of his rightto appeal this decision as delineated by 9 CFR 306.5.
