USDA Inspection Report: 23 Feb 2011

Code: 01B02
Violation: 416.4(a)

Citation: At approximately 0450 hours while performing a scheduled 01B02, before the start of operations and after the plant performed their preoperational inspection, I noticed the following deficiency. In the ham stuffing room the tipper tie machine had fat and meat particles on the under side of the roller that pulls the meat down the belt. I took regulatory control and applied USDA tag # B26 856980 to the machine. Mr. cleaned the equipment in my presence. I then relinquished regulatory control and removed the USDA tag. The plant is not compling with regulation 416.4(a). Mr. and were verbally notified of this noncompliance.


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.
