Citation: At approximately 0600 hours, while performing ISP code 01B02 (preoperational sanitation), I observed the following noncompliances, in the processing room: 1. Thirteen blue tubs were observed that had a build-up of residue (fat,grease) on the top edges and also the bottoms of the units. 2. Five gray square containers were observed that had a build-up (fat, grease) on the top edges of the units. 3. Both Pattie machines had product residue (fat, meat) in numerous areas throughout the units. Rust was observed in various areas also. I informed Mr. [redacted] (Supervisor) of the noncompliances. The tubs and containers were removed from the floor and cleaned and then released. The Pattie machines were tagged with USDA tag #B37853035 at 0600, after cleaning they were released at 0630 hours.
