Citation: On 2/21/2011 while walking through the establishment, I entered the tray pack storage room. The floor under the tray storage racks had paper, a broom, dirt, dust, etc.. Also when I moved some of the packages of trays I found a black buildup on the walls. I informed on Friday (2/18/11) about this room needing cleaned. I placed US Rejected tag # B39-801532 on the room and informed QA person & Breast deboning lead of my findings.
