USDA Inspection Report: 29 Dec 2010

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

Citation: On December 29, 2010 at approximately 07:15 hours while performing Pre-Operational Sanitation Inspection, (01B02), I observed a stack of used, overturned wax coated chicken boxes,10 to 15, on a pallet that had been brought out from storage. On several of these boxes were pieces of fat and feathers from previous days production. These boxes were neither cleaned or sanitized, and no plastic liners were inserted in any of these boxes. Plant SSOP Pre-Requisite program states: "[redacted]. Since none of the above procedures were carried out, plant is in noncompliance with the following regulations. Mr. (Plant Manager) was notified of these noncompliance's, and immediately removed these boxes from production floor and were disposed of. No product was affected because these noncompliance's were found prior to start of production. 9 CFR 416.13(c) States in part that each official Establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP's. 9 CFR 416.4(a) States in part that all food contact surfaces including food contact surfaces or utensils, and equipment must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product. 9 CFR 416.4(d) States in part that product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, storage, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments.
