Establishment No.: p493
USDA Inspection Report: 28 Aug 2010
Violation: 416.13(c), 416.4(b)
Citation: At approximately 0450 hours, while performing preoperational sanitation verification in the Breast Deboning Department, I observed the following deficiencies: numerous pieces of fat, meat, and product residue from a prior day's operation on the cones and links of cone line pieces of fat on trim table #2, and pieces of fat on black power cords over trim table #1. I rejected the equipment with US Reject tag No. B39801743 and informed QA tech of the deficiencies. At approximately 0520 hours, I reinspected the cone line, trim table and power cords, determined them acceptable and release them to production. These deficiencies are in violation of 9 CFR 416.13(c) and 416.4b) and the establishment's Sanitation Standard Operating Procedures. Plant management has received oral and written notification of this noncompliance.
416.13(c) Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s.
416.4(b) Non-food-contact surfaces of facilities, equipment, and utensils used in the operation of the establishment must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.
