Citation: At approximately 2118 hours, in room 2309, between the end of Pre-Operational Sanitation and the beginning of Production, I observed 2 Vats of Raw Pork for further processing were covered with green plastic bags to protect the product from any adulteration during the clean up process.

Upon further investigation I observed liquid that has gotten into the Product. I took immeadiate regulatory control by attaching a USDA retain tag # B4118892 to the 590 lbs of raw meat for further processing, I then informed Mr. of the above noncompliance.
