USDA Inspection Report: 28 Jun 2011

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

Citation: At approximately 1905 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 chicken particles, black specks, and product residue on the white paddles of the east maestro machine. I immediately rejected the maestro machine with U.S. tag #B39801290 and notified of the noncompliance. In the cut-up department at approximately 2155 hrs. I observed chicken fat and product residue on the white conveyor of the thigh skinner. I immediately rejected the thigh skinner conveyor with U.S. tag #B39801285 and notified of the noncompliance. Both units were direct product contact surfaces. After a review of the plants SSOP records, the maestro machine was documented as rejected for chicken particles and cleaned and sanitized and released for USDA inspection at 1850 hrs. The thigh skinner was documented as acceptable and the department was released for USDA at 2141 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.
