USDA Inspection Report: 7 Jul 2011

Code: 01B02
Violation: 416.4(b)

Citation: On July 7, 2011 at approximately 0635 hours while performing procedure code 01B02 Pre-Operational Sanitation Inspection after the establishment's pre-operational sanitation procedures were completed, I observed the following noncompliance in the Harvest floor department. The underneath portion of tail conveyor belt had numerous pieces of fat from the previous days production. The pieces of fat ranged in size from 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch. No regulatory control action was taken since the establishment's sanitation department took immediate steps to correct this noncompliance. 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.


416.4(b) Non-food-contact surfaces of facilities, equipment, and utensils used in the operation of the establishment must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.
