Code: 01B02
Violation: 416.13(c), 416.3(a), 416.4(a)

Citation: At 0430 Hr I observed while conducting the 01B02 procedure in the processing department, in the spice room, 1 white bucket of emulsifier parts with meat emulsion on them. I notified [redacted] cleaning personnel and they immediately recleaned/ resanitized the parts. No regulatory control action was needed. In this same department, in the small cooler I found 1 white food container with grinder plates and blades with fat and rust on these parts. I applied US Reject Tag No. B 30 829124 to these parts. In the Pump/Ham stuffing department I observed 1 hand held ham stuffer/netter with rough cracked welds on the inside surface. I applied US Reject Tag No. B 30 829123 to this equipment. I notified [redacted] HACCP/ QC Supervisor of these non-compliances. This is a violation of 9 CFR 416.13(c), 416.3(a), and 416.4(a).


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

416.3(a) Equipment and utensils used for processing or otherwise handling edible product or ingredients must be of such material and construction to facilitate thorough cleaning and to ensure that their use will not cause the adulteration of product during processing, handling, or storage. Equipment and utensils must be maintained in sanitary condition so as not to adulterate product.
