Establishment No.: p460

USDA Inspection Report: 27 Jun 2011

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.2(b)(1), 416.4(a)

Citation: On June 27, 2011, at approximately 1:35 pm, while observing operation in the Turkey BBQ processing area, Inspector observed water dripping from the ceiling. Upon further investigation it was discovered that water was dripping along a seam in the ceiling approximately 20 feet long and directly above one of the processing tables. The processing table was not being utilized at the time, but could be used as a product contact surface in the production process. Approximately one half of the table was observed to be covered in tiny droplets of water resulting from the water dripping from the ceiling, hitting the surface of the table, and splashing. Where the dripping water had collected on the table, the water appeared to be tinged a rusty color. Upon observing these conditions of noncompliance, Inspector Means applied US Rejected tag # B30911005 and notified plant management. Ms. , QC, was verbally notified of the noncompliance at approximately 1:50 PM and Mr. Asst. Plant Manager, was verbally notified of the noncompliance at approximately 2:00 PM. The establishment has failed to comply with regulatory requirements of 9CFR 416.2(b)(1), "Establishment buildings, including their structures, rooms, and compartments must be of sound construction, be kept in good repair, and be of sufficient size to allow for processing, handling, and storage of product in a manner that does not result in product adulteration or the creation of insanitary conditions" and 9CFR 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". At the time that Mr. was notified of the noncompliance, he stated that they would not use the equipment until it was cleaned and sanitized and that plastic would be hung along the seam in the ceiling as a temporary solution to the problem. He further stated that the long-term solution would be to replace the roof, and the entire roof of the building is scheduled to be replaced next month. It is imperative that an establishment maintain a sanitary processing environment, including sanitary equipment, in order to prevent the occurrence of unforeseen food safety hazards.

Regulation:

416.2(b)(1) Establishment buildings, including their structures, rooms, and compartments must be of sound construction, be kept in good repair, and be of sufficient size to allow for processing, handling, and storage of product in a manner that does not result in product adulteration or the creation of insanitary conditions.

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.
