USDA Inspection Report: 24 Feb 2011

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

Citation: On February 24, 2011 at approximately 0550 hours while performing procedure code 01B02 Pre-Operational Sanitation Inspection after the establishment's pre-operational procedures were completed, I observed the following noncompliance in the processing room. There were approximately 25 re-hang shackles on the round line with fat and blood from the previous days production. These re-hang shackles had numerous pieces of fat and blood particles scattered sporadically on them. A U. S. Reject tag #B37070604 was issued to control these re-hang shackles. There was no indication that this noncompliance was identified by the establishment. The affected area was cleaned and sanitized prior to the start of operations. No product was affected since this noncompliance was found on pre-operational sanitation.


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.
