USDA Inspection Report: 17 Feb 2012

Code: 01B02
Violation: 416.13(a)

Citation: On February 17th 2012 at approximately 0530 hours while performing pre operational inspection on the dressing floor, I observed a build up of fat and meat approximately 1" thick, located inside a piece of pvc pipe. I was informed that the white pvc pipe is a knife holder for the snoot flush area. During production, this knife holder/ pvc pipe is placed in the sterilizer. At this timeI informed QA [redacted] of this non compliance. The contaminated knife holder / pvc pipe was cleaned, reinspected and released. This document serves as a written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirement(s) could result in additional regulatory or administrative action.


416.13(a) Each official establishment shall conduct the pre-operational procedures in the Sanitation SOPís before the start of operations.
