Establishment No.: p1304

USDA Inspection Report: 1 Sep 2010

Code: 01B02
Violation: 416.13(c), 416.4(a)

Citation: At approximately 2150 hrs., after the plants pre-operational sanitation and prior to the start of operations I observed the following noncompliance while performing an unscheduled 01B02 procedure for pre-operational sanitation. In the cut-up department I observed pieces of chicken meat, fat and multiple chicken particles on the upper front half conveyor. I immediately rejected the upper front half conveyor with U.S. tag #B39801911 and notified the sanitation manager of the of the noncompliance. This was a direct product contact surface. After a review of the plants SSOP records for the cut-up department, the upper front half conveyor was documented as rejected for (OS) overspray and the department was released for USDA inspection at 2133 hrs. This document serves as a written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional enforcement action described in 9 CFR part 500.


416.13(c) Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s.

416.4(a) All food-contact surfaces, including food-contact surfaces of utensils and equipment, must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.
