USDA Inspection Report: 15 Sep 2011

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

Citation: At 0510 Hr. while conducting the 01B02 procedure I observed the following in the Pump/Stuffing room. The belt to the conveyor had meat pieces/particles on the surface. The belt to the ham stuffer had meat particles on the surface, and the piping to the ham stuffer had meat particles inside, where the piping and metal ends meet. I notified Mr. [redacted] Supervisor and he immediately recleaned the belts. He removed the piping from the department for cleaning by cleaning personnel. The equipment was cleaned prior to use. This is a violation of 9 CFR 416.13(c), and 416.4(a).


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.
