USDA Inspection Report: 4 Oct 2010

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.2(b)(1), 416.2(b)(2), 416.4(b)

Citation: On October 4th, 2010 at approximately 1300 hours, the following sanitation performance standards non-compliances were observed: In the inedible area where the de-hairing unit and gut buggy are stored, the walls are exhibiting a large amount of peeling/flaking paint. The steel I-beam that runs along the ceiling (and the carcass rail) have unidentified foreign material (ufm) and scaling/flaking rust running along the length of them. The scale mechanism also has a large amount of ufm and flaking rust in and about it. The rubber seal at the top of the carcass cooler door that allows for rollers to pass through into the cooler when pushing carcasses in also has dried ufm covering it. Also, In the processing/cut-up room, the fan guards on the cooling unit on the ceiling that's located above a processing table have a large build-up of dust/dirt accumulating on them. I notified Plant Owner Glenn Finkenbinder of these findings.
