USDA Inspection Report: 16 Jul 2010

Code: 01B02
Violation: 416.13(c)

Citation: At approximately 07:35 on July 16, 2010 after plant personnel informed me they had conducted their pre-operation sanitation and found no deficiencies, I conducted PBIS task 01B02 and I observed the following noncompliances. In the processing room, the grinder head was not removed for inspection, on the underneath of the grinder head there is a gap between the head and grinder that has meat and fat matter in an area approximately one half inch by one inch in size. The slicer has approximately eight pieces of meat matter on the blade and tray approximately quarter inch by quarter inch in size. Three table tops have stains on them black and brown in color. I reviewed the SSOP corrective action log and found no documentation on the above equipment. Regulatory control was taken, equipment was rejected, tag number B19912231. was verbally notified of the above deficiencies. This is a violation of part 416.13(c) Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP's. I then reviewed the NR file and found similar NR. This document serves as written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional regulatory or administrative action. Also advised Mr. he has the right to appeal this decision as delineated by 306.5 of 9CFR. At 09:40 the grinder head was removed and the grinder and slicer were re-inspected and found acceptable. Past Similar NRs - Previous Ineffective Plant Actions: Notified clean up personnel, gave him a warning about problems, management doing double checks every other day until problem is resolved NR: 12-2010 dated 6/21/2010
