USDA Inspection Report: 20 Jun 2011

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.2(d), 416.4(b)

Citation: At approximately 1900 hrs., after the plants pre-operational sanitation and prior to the start of operations, I observed the following noncompliance's while performing the 01B02 procedure for pre-operational sanitation. In the evisceration department I observed an excessive amount of product residue build up on top of the motor for the bird scrubber on the west line. And pieces of fat and over spray on top of the over head wheels for the inside/outside bird washer. I immediately notified the sanitation supervisor of the noncompliance's. I also observed condensation on overhead pipes in the department. I also notified of the noncompliance. After a review of the plants SSOP records for the evisceration department no deficiencies were documented for the above units and the department was released for USDA inspection at 1845 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.


416.2(d) Ventilation. Ventilation adequate to control odors, vapors, and condensation to the extent necessary to prevent adulteration of product and the creation of insanitary conditions must be provided.

416.4(b) Non-food-contact surfaces of facilities, equipment, and utensils used in the operation of the establishment must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.
