Establishment No.: p493
USDA Inspection Report: 1 Jul 2010
Violation: 416.13(c), 416.2(d)
Citation: At approximately 1600 hours while performing a review and observation procedure (01C02) in the Marination and Tumbling room I observed the following non-compliance. A plant employee had just empted the marinate tumbler and took a yellow high pressure hot water hose and washed out the tumbler. That action filled the small room with steam vapors and that caused condensation to form on the ceiling that was already covered with plastic due to condensation falling from the ceiling above it. This small room does not have adequate ventilation needed to prevent the creation of condensation to the extent necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions.CFR 416.2(d). I immediately took a regulatory control action by stopping that production and applied USDA tag # B39801748 to the room and all product in it (about 25 totes that had the lids on them) and a role of plastic bags, and marinate in there buckets. I informed of my findings. After sanitary conditions were restored I relinquished the regulatory control action at approximately 1700 hours. A check of the plants Daily Operational Sanitation Records, and I found no documentation at that time for this non-compliance. Poultry processing will be preformed under sanitary conditions and in a manner to prevent direct product contamination or adulteration. This document serves as written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional regulatory or administrative actions.
