Establishment No.: m08615

USDA Inspection Report: 21 Sep 2011

Code: 01B02
Violation: 416.13(a), 416.4(a)

Citation: At approximately 0600 hours, while performing an unscheduled 01B02 procedure, I observed the following: Hair on multiple paddles of the hog scalder. Blood and residue on the scabbard holding the knives used to eviscerate and skin the carcasses. The hack saw used to split small carcass and remove legs was hanging from the cutting blade on a greased wheel of a carcass rail hook. Unidentified material was floating in the water of the knife sanitizer. There was product residue in a product lug from the previous day's production. The establishment took immediate corrective actions in my presence; therefore, no regulatory control action was taken. Mr. was verbally notified of the non-compliance. The establishment is not complying with 9CFR 416.13(c) and 416.4(a).


416.13(a) Each official establishment shall conduct the pre-operational procedures in the Sanitation SOPís before the start of operations.

416.4(a) All food-contact surfaces, including food-contact surfaces of utensils and equipment, must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.
