Citation: 24 April 2012 at approximately 0715 while performing the scheduled SPS verification task, I observed the following non compliance to the Sanitation Performance Standards. 1) The trim of the door leading from the kill floor towards the barn area is falling off. This is a temporary door which is not finished. The establishment has made previous repairs to this door, door jamb, and door trim in the past. The door, door jamb, and door trim has deteriorate and is no longer in good repair as required. I rejected the door by attaching a U.S. Retain tag number B38377356. 2) The large metal storage rack inside the storage cooler has fat and dried blood from a previous day’s operation. I observed no exposed product on the shelf. I rejected the shelf using U.S. Reject tag number B338377357.
