USDA Inspection Report: 11 Aug 2010

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.1, 416.2(b)(1)

Citation: At approximately 0916 hours, while performing a review and observation component for the 01C02 procedure in the Deboning Department. I exited the Deboning Department and observed water dripping down from the ceiling approximately five feet from the entrance door to the Deboning Department. I immediately informed (2nd Processing Superintendent) of my observation. After a review of the plant SSOP's records for the Deboning Department, no deficiencies were document for leaks. After reviewing the plant's Operational Sanitation records and GMP Monitor's records there were no entries documented prior to my observation of the noncompliance. The noncompliance found involved no direct product contamination. This is a failure to comply with 9 CFR 416.2 (b) (1) as well as 9 CFR 416.1. I discussed verbally with plant management on my concern with water dripping from the ceiling/overhead structures in the establishment and during the USDA/Plant Management weekly meetings. This document serves as a written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirement could result in additional enforcement action described in 9 CFR part 500.


416.1 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.

416.2(b)(1) Establishment buildings, including their structures, rooms, and compartments must be of sound construction, be kept in good repair, and be of sufficient size to allow for processing, handling, and storage of product in a manner that does not result in product adulteration or the creation of insanitary conditions.
