USDA Inspection Report: 26 Sep 2011

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.4(b)

Citation: At approximately 2045 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-operation sanitation. In the deboning department I observed product residue build up under the frame of the thigh gainco area and under the apron racks. I immediately notified of the noncompliance's. While continuing my inspection in the cut-up department at approximately 2250 hrs. I observed product residue build up, pieces of fat and chicken particles on three roller tracks. I also observed chicken particles and fat under the scales. I immediately notified of all noncompliance's. All noncompliance's were nonproduct contact surface's. After a review of the plants SSOP records, no deficiencies were documented prior to my observation and the department was released for USDA inspection at 2030 hrs. and 2135 hrs. for cut-up department. 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.


416.4(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.
