USDA Inspection Report: 14 Mar 2012

Code: 01B02
Violation: 416.4(a), 416.4(b)

Citation: On March 14, 2012 while performing pre-operational sanitation I observed several areas of noncompliance on the dressing floor and processing floor of the establishment. On the dressing floor I noticed oil dripping from the second leg lift as well as a heavy grease build-up on top of the lift (this could be seen when the lift lowered). There was also a heavy build-up of grease on the rail, that this leg lift is on, that was approximately one half inch thick on the top half of the rail. There was a heavy build-up of grease on the brackets of this rail that were over one inch thick as well. All four tripe machines had remnants from the previous day of operations in them when presented for inspection. The omasum machine located adjacent to the viscera table had an area two inches wide by four inches long of ingesta and fat build-up in the top of the machine where the sprayers are located. The omasum second wash machine had several one inch by one inch areas in the top of the machine that also contained ingesta and fat from the previous day of operations. Both machines used for honey comb tripe had ingesta particles located in the top part of the machine and all of the tripe machines had ingesta and fat particles along the seals of their doors. All these areas were cleaned by sanitation, presented for re-inspection, and passed for use for production. On the round line of the processing room there were areas of condensation on the beams above the line as well as on the pipes that cross over this line. There was one saw on this line that had an over spray of fat and meat particles on it from the previous day of production. Of the four re-hang hooks on the line that I checked three of them had meat and fat particles on them from the previous day of production. The areas of condensation were wiped down and removed of condensate. The meat and fat particles on the saw as well as the re-hang hooks were washed, wiped down, and the entire line was sanitized. This area was rechecked by USDA personnel and found acceptable for production.
