Citation: On Tuesday, 12/07/2010, at approximately 2040 hours, after plant's pre-operational sanitation and prior to the start of operation, I observed the following noncompliance's while performing an unscheduled pre-op sanitation (01B02) procedure, In the (Thigh & Leg Debone Department) the following was observed: I observed condensation on an overhead drip pan and ceiling dripping on product contact surface's (Dumper's and Incline Conveyors) and product zone area in the Thigh and Leg Dumper's areas. I informed (Sanitation Manager) of my observation. I rejected Thigh & Leg Dumper's areas for unsanitary condition with US Rejected Tag B39 801374.
