Violation: 416.1, 416.2(e)(2)

Citation: Today at approximately 1115 hours while performing inspection duties on the kill floor I noticed waste water backflowing onto the kill floor from a drain plug. This area is located near the hand wash sink as you enter the kill floor. The liquid appeared to be clear but, emitted a foul odor when standing in close proximity to the area. The kill floor supervisor and the plant manager observed this noncompliance with me and immediately cordoned off the area, therefore no regulaory action was needed. I informed [redacted] and [redacted] that since this is creating an insanitary condition I will issue an NR. There is no product adulteration. I reviewed the establishments SSOP form 001 dated 3/1/2011 and signed by [redacted] and there was no documentaton of this insanitary condition. I reviewed the establishments prequisite for sewage and plumbing and it has not been met, as welll as CFR 416.1 and 416.2(e)(2) of the meat and poultry regulations. This document serves as a written notification that your failue to comply with the regulatory requirements could result in additional regulatory or administrative actions.
