USDA Inspection Report: 29 Jun 2010

Code: 03B02
Violation: 417.4(a)(2)(i), 417.5(a)(3)

Citation: On June29, 2010 at approximately 12:30 p.m. while performing a scheduled 03B02 Raw-Ground procedure I was reviewing the establishment's records for the daily calibration of it's thermometer. (As prescribed in it's HACCP Plan). I noticed that it had not yet been performed for this day and upon closer examination it was not performed and/or recorded for the previous day (June 28th). I notified plant owner Glenn Finkenbinder of this and he promptly prepared a cup of ice water as prescribed in his plan and calibrated the thermometer in my presence. I observed it to be within the 32 degree parameter, therefore it was still properly calibrated. I also noted to that his form states[redacted] There are no records for hot thermometer calibration listed. I questioned about this and he stated he no longer uses a hot thermometer as there is no longer a smokehouse.
