Tedís Meat Market

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

USDA Inspection Report: 9 May 2012

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

Citation: While performing a scheduled routine PHIS Pre-Op SSOP Review and Observation Task at approximately 06:10 am, after plant inspection and before the start of operations, I noticed the following noncompliance which generate this NR report.
At the Slaughter area cattle head wash station, I noticed the metal divider had small pieces of food particles on both sides of the divider. These particles did not look like anything left over from washing heads at a previous slaughter, but from overspray when washing other equipment in this area. This is a food contact surface. No product was affected.
Also, I noticed that a section of the electric power cord for the brisket saw had a dry black residue on the surface. I was able to scrape this residue off the cord with my finger nail. This is not a food contact surface. No product was affected.
Mr. was notified of these deficiencies and these were cleaned and restored to a sanitary condition prior to the beginning of operation. These items were found acceptable upon re-inspection.
Regulation 416.13(c) states that "Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOPs." Regulation 416.13(a) states that "All food-contact surfaces, including food-contact surfaces of utensils and equipment, must be sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product."

Regulation:

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

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.

416.4(b) Non-food-contact surfaces of facilities, equipment, and utensils used in the operation of the establishment must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.
