Code: 01B02
Violation: 416.13(c), 416.3(b), 416.4(a)

Citation: At approximately 0445 hours, while performing ISP code 01B02 (Pre-operational Inspection), I observed in the Fresh to Freezer area small pieces of fat and meat on the Reepack machine. There was also blood on the wall and a wall anchor bolt plate had peeling paint. In the Weigh/ Price department I observed fat and pieces of meat on the floor under the weigh price machines. White meat debone department as I inspected the #1 cone line I removed one of the cones from its shaft and found a build-up inside the cone and on the shaft of U.F.M. I then had several more cones removed from their shafts only to find the same UFM build-up. I took regulatory control action by rejecting all three cone lines and applied U.S. reject tag # B 39801542 at 0500 hours. In the Tray pack area I observed on both Machines fat and meat particles and fat and meat on the floor in this area. I notified Ms. of these noncompliances and informed her that I would be issuing an NR for these noncompliances. At 0555 hours I re-inspected the cone line shafts and the cones which had been removed. I found them acceptable and released the department to production. 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 0078-2010-17446 dated 07/08/2010. 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.
