Tedís Meat Market

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

USDA Inspection Report: 22 Jul 2011

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

Citation: While performing a scheduled 01B02 task, (SSOP Pre-operational Sanitation) at 06:11 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, I found dried blood across the underside of the top hand grip, and dried bone dust, fat, and meat residue on the blade guide and frame of the carcass splitting saw from a previous day of kill. This is a food contact surface 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, I found the splitting was acceptable for use. No product was affected. No retain/reject tag was issued. 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 that "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. No past similar NRs within the last 90 days.

Regulation:

416.13(c) Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOPís.

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.
