USDA Inspection Report: 28 Sep 2010

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.1, 416.4(b)

Citation: While performing an unscheduled PBIS verification procedure 01B02, observations by Inspection required the performance of an unscheduled 06D01 procedure. The following non-compliance was observed; hog hair from previous operations was observed to be on the hog dehairing machines framework---a non-product contact surface. The hair was of various colors, was easily removed by touch, and was on an area approximately 2 inches by 3 feet on the underside of the frame. This observation was made at 0835hrs, which was prior to operations but after the plant's monitor performed their pre-operational inspection. took immediate action in my presence to clean the apparatus in question. The findings of Inspection are a violation of 9 CFR 416.1 which states "Each official establishment must be operated and maintained in a manner sufficient to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and to ensure that product is not adulterated.", and 9 CFR 416.4(b) which 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." was informed of this non-compliance with regulations both verbally and in writing with the issuance of this Non-compliance Report.
