Citation: On November 12, 2010 at approximately 0637 hours while performing procedure code 01B02 Pre-Operational Sanitation Inspection after the establishment's preoperational sanitation procedures were completed, I observed the following noncompliance in the dressing floor department. The tail conveyor going from the tail stand to the tail packing area with a build up of fat on the white guide rails especially in the area of the s-corner, and several of the stainless steel support bars. The fat residue was completely cover the one inch white guide bar in several places approximately seven inches in length. Also where these white guide bars meet the one quarter inch gaps between were filled full with fat residue. The stainless steel support bars with several one quarter inch particles of fat on the surface. No regulatory control action was taken since the Plant Sanitation Supervisor took immediate steps to correct this noncompliance. There was no indication that that this noncompliance was identified by the establishment. The affected tail conveyor was cleaned and sanitized prior tot he start of operations. No product was affected since this was found on pre-operational sanitation.
