Address: RD#2, Box 361, Reynoldsville, PA 15851
Establishment No.: m08633

USDA Inspection Report: 16 Jul 2010

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

Citation: While performing a scheduled 01B02 task at 06:05 am to verify the establishment's pre-operational conditions, after plant inspection and prior to the start of operations, I noticed the following noncompliance that generates this written NR report. In the killing area, there was a large amount of dried bone, fat, and meat residue from the previous day of kill on and inside the splitting saw. This is a food contact piece of equipment used to split the carcass down the backbone. Mr. [redacted] was notified of this deficiency and immediately proceeded to have the splitting saw re-cleaned and restored to a sanitary condition. Upon re-inspection, the splitting saw was found acceptable for use. No product was affected. Regulation 416.13(c) states that "Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOPs." Regulation 416.4(a) states "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." This document serves as written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional regulatory or administrative actions. You are also advised of your right to appeal this decision as delineated by 9 CFR 306.5 and or 381.95. Past Similar NRs within the last 90 days.
