Violation: 416.4(a), 416.4(d)

Citation: At approximately 8:30 a.m. I was walking through cut-up and noticed 1 bin of ice that had black specks and so I condemned the bin of ice. Upon further investigation I noticed 4 bins of mixed parts( wings, drumsticks, and legs). Upon further investigation I noticed black specks on the plastic and on the ice. I notified (2nd Processing Manager), & (QC) of my findings and tagged 4 bins with tag# B39801585, B39801584, B38670050 and B39802052..Then walking through packing I noticed a combo bin that was one quarter filled with product and the plastic was torn which made it an unsanitary container. I notified ( Packing Supervisor) of my findings and tagged the combo bin with tag#B38670052. Establishment management has received oral and written notification concerning this noncompliance. The noncompliance involved direct product cross contamination.
