Citation: Today at approximately 0800 hours I performed an unscheduled 06D01 procedure to verify sanitation performance standards are being met in one or more areas of the plant. In the processing room I observed the framework of the Hanteman lift for the dumper to have peeling/lifting paint. I also noticed serveral areas of the floor to have peeling/lifting paint. In the RTE packaging room the floor also has lifted and or peeling paint. These areas are not product contact surfaces. [redacted] production manager observed these deficiencies with me. These deficiencies I have discussed with plant management at two weekly meetings. I also informed Beste and the office manager that I would issue an NR. I reviewed the establishments pre-requisite program for construction . The establishments SPS program for construction as well as CFR 416.1 and CFR 416.2(b)(1) have not been met. This document serves as a written notification that your failure to comply with the regulatory requirements could result in additional regulatory or administrative action.
