Establishment No.: p1304

USDA Inspection Report: 27 Sep 2011

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

Citation: At approximately 1900 hrs. after the plants pre-operational sanitation and prior to the start of operations, I observed the following noncompliance while performing the 01B02 procedure for pre-operational sanitation. In the picking room department I observed a steady stream of water leaking from an overhead duct directly into the east scalder. I immediately rejected the east scalder with U.S. tag #B39800905 and notified of the noncompliance. After a review of the SSOP records for the picking room department, the east scalder was found acceptable and the department was released at 1830 hrs. for USDA inspection. While continuing my inspection of pre-op sanitation in the evisceration department, I observed the following noncompliance at approximately 1920 hrs. I observed water leaking from an overhead exhaust unit on to the direct product contact surface of the picking room line located at the south end of the department between the hock cutter and the rehangers. I immediately rejected the picking room line with U.S. tag # B39800912 and notified of the noncompliance. After a review of the SSOP records for the evisceration department, the area was documented as acceptable and the department was released for USDA inspection at 1910 hrs. Approximate down time was one hour. 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.

Regulation:

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.
