Code: 01B02
Violation: 416.13(a), 416.2(b), 416.4(a)

Citation: At approximately 0600, while performing ISP code 01B02 (pre-operational sanitation), I observed the following noncompliances on the kill floor: 1. Upon entering the kill floor; the 1st hoist had product residue (fat, blood) on the black control cord. 2. The well saw had product residue (fat, blood) on the blade of the saw. 3. The ladder which is used to wash the carcasses, had product residue (fat, meat) on the sides and the steps. 4. The bag used to cover the control for the splitting saw was in an unsanitary condition. It was from the previous production day. These items are product contact areas. I informed Mr. [redacted] (kill floor lead) of the noncompliances and tagged the floor with USDA reject tag B37853301. After theses areas were cleaned I released the floor at 0618 hours. These noncompliances are violation of 9CFR 416.4(a), 416.13(a) and your SSOP Plan. I also observed the following 06D01 (facility) noncompliances well performing pre-operational sanitation. 1. The door located in the kill floor office is bent/broke at the bottom corner of the door. 2. This same area has a hole in the wall beside the door frame. These areas are a violation of 9CFR 416.2(b).
