Citation: At approximately 0420 hours, while performing ISP code 01B02 (Pre-operational) Inspection), I observed in the evisceration department the neck hook holder at the neck pump area had fluid in it which contained a large piece of fat and other unidentified foreign material. I notified Mr. (3rd Shift Maintenance Supervision) who was acting as the Establishments represenative for pre-op, of the noncompliance. I remained in the area while the neck hook and holder was cleaned . I re-inspected and released the neck hook and its holder. At 0450 hours, in the White Meat debone department, I observed pieces of meat and fat ranging from 1/4" to 1/2" in size on the trim belt of the #3 debone line and several pieces of fat and meat on the scale at the CVP machine. I notified Mr. of these noncompliances and remained in the area while they were re-cleaned, at which time I re-inspected and released the belt and the scale. I notified Mr., Mr. that I would be issuing an NR for these noncompliance's. The Establishment has received oral and written notification concerning this noncompliance. Past Similar NR's - Previous preventive measures were either not implemented or were ineffective in preventing the recurrence of this noncompliance. Please refer to NR 0073-2010-17446 Dated 06-25-2010. This document serves as written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional enforcement action as described in 9 CFR part 500.
