USDA Inspection Report: 16 May 2011

Code: 01C02
Violation: 416.13(c), 416.15(b)

Citation: At approximately 2227 hours on 5/16/11, while walking through the Ham Staging Area, I observed the following noncompliance. [newline] Liquid was spraying and dripping from the A/C unit in the Ham Staging Area. This liquid was falling on 2 racks of raw pork bellies injected with a cure solution (~220 pieces) and a half full rack of raw hocks. This is direct product contamination. I immediately tagged the affect product with US Retained tags B31837614, B31837615, and B31837615. Then, I alerted [redacted] (Production Supervisor) of the noncompliance. [newline] In NR #UGA030005051 dated 05/13/11, the same A/C unit was observed spraying water onto raw pork bellies injected with cure. The establishment has not yet responded to NR #UGA030005051. Any corrective actions taken by the establishment have not been effective in preventing recurrence.[newline] The establishment has failed to meet the requirements of 9 CFR 416.13(c) and 416.15(b).


416.13(c) Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOPís

416.15(b) Corrective actions include procedures to ensure appropriate disposition of product(s) that may be contaminated, restore sanitary conditions, and prevent the recurrence of direct contamination or adulteration of product( s), including appropriate reevaluation and modification of the Sanitation SOPís and the procedures specified therein or appropriate improvements in the execution of the Sanitation SOPís or the procedures specified therein.
