Establishment No.: p493
USDA Inspection Report: 14 Jul 2010
Citation: At approximately 0545 hours, while walking through the Tumbler Room, I observed three red buckets used for marination solution sitting directly on the floor. I tagged the buckets with USReject tag No. B39801764 and informed QA Manager of the noncompliance. At approximately 0635, I observed a plant employee wash and sanitize the buckets. I inspected the buckets, determined them acceptable and released them into production. This noncompliance is a failure of 9 CFR 416.4(a) for not maintaining food-contact utensils in a sanitary manner. Establishment management have received oral and written communication concerning this noncompliance. Failure to meet regulatory requirements could result in additional enforcement action as described in 9 CFR part 500.
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.
