Citation: On January 06, 2011 at approximately 0740 hrs while performing ISP procedure code 01C02, operational sanitation inspection, the following noncompliance was noted in RM #139 - Cut Floor: the establishment utilizes red plastic totes for inedible product and gray plastic totes for edible product. Upon performing an inspection of the overhead ham line conveyor #3253, I noted that empty red and gray product totes (awaiting use) were stacked within each other on the platform floor next to the conveyor. A red plastic tote on the platform floor adjacent to the conveyor was being utilized to store approximately 70 lbs of edible ham knuckles. In addition, a gray tote containing approximately 35 lbs of edible ham membrane shavings was noted to be stored on the platform floor under the conveyor with water/condensation droplets from the underside of the conveyor frame dripping directly into the tote. Upon further inspection, I noted various gray product totes stored directly on the floor, as well as two gray totes lying on there sides directly on the floor. At this time, the overhead ham line conveyor and all product in question was rejected/retained with U.S. Reject/Retain Tag # B28356899. Mr. [redacted] Supervisor, was notified of the noncompliance, insanitary condition, failure to meet the Meat and Poultry Regulations 416.13(c) and 416.3(c), and failure to execute the establishment's SSOP.
