Establishment No.: p1304

USDA Inspection Report: 7 Jul 2011

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.2(d)

Citation: At approximately 2030 hrs. I observed the following noncompliance in the evisceration department while performing the review and observation component for the 01C02 procedure. I observed condensation on overhead pipes above the maestro machine on the east line. I immediately notified the evisceration supervisor of the noncompliance. He informed me that maintenance failed to replace a motor above the area which caused the water to form on the pipes. This issue of maintenance negligence was discussed at the previous weekly meeting with the plant and the maintenance manager on 7/1/11. No product was involved at the time of the observation of the noncompliance. After a review of the plants SSOP records for the evisceration department no deficiencies were documented prior to my observation 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.
