Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.2(d), 416.4(b)

Citation: On October 28, 2010 at approximately 650 hours, while performing ISP procedure code 01B02, pre-operational sanitation, the following noncompliances were observed on non-food contact surfaces. In the processing area, there was frozen condensate (ice) coating the black covering of the drainage pipe of the refrigeration unit closest to the entrance doors on the east wall. In the large carcass cooler, there was a residue buildup on the underside of the two refrigeration units along the east wall. [redacted] QC, and [redacted] QC were notified of the noncompliances. No regulatory control action was taken because the plant took immediate action to correct the deficiencies. The establishment is not complying with regulations. 9 CFR 416.2 (d) states, "Ventilation adequate to control odors, vapors, and condensation to the extent necessary to prevent adulteration of product and the creation of insanitary conditions must be provided." 9 CFR 416.4 (b) states: "Non-food-contact surfaces of facilities, equipment, and utensils used in the operation of the establishment must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product." This document serves as written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional regulatory or administrative action.
