USDA Inspection Report: 3 Feb 2011

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

Citation: On Thursday, 02/03/2011, at approximately 2013 hours, after plant's pre-operational sanitation and prior to the start of operation, I observed the following noncompliance's, while performed an unscheduled review and observation component for the 01C02 procedure in the Evisceration Department; I observed water dripping from the ceiling drip pan approximately 5 feet from the west oil sac cutter and water dripping from the ceiling approximately 5 inches from the west vent machine. I immediately informed (Night Shift Plant Manager) of my observation. The water was dripping from ceiling drip pan approximately every two seconds and the water dripping from the ceiling approximately every one minute. The noncompliance found involved no direct product contamination. This is a failure to comply with 9 CFR 416.2 (b) (2) 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 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.
