Violation: 416.13(c), 416.3(a), 416.4(a)

Citation: At 0450 Hr., while conducting the 01B02 procedure I observed in the #1 Bacon room, the bacon press with rust/ black grease and particles on the top support arm. The white press board that comes from the top support has stain/particles on it from the rust and grease. The deck has much metal that is pitted/rusted. I applied US Reject Tag No. B 30 829129 to this equipment. I immediately notified [redacted] QC Technician. 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.

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.
