Citation: While performing pre-operational sanitation verification on 04/19/2011, I observed the following noncompliances : at 0450 hours in the dark meat debone department I observed in and on the top surface of the thigh skinning machine belt several small black specks and black greasy material in the webbing of the exit belt of the machine. On the trim belt of the deboning belt I observed black specks and several pieces of fat as well as particles of black UFM on the trimming boards on the deboning belt. I notified Mr. of the noncompliances and remained in the area until the noncompliances were corrected and re-inspected at which time I released the department to production. In the Tray Pack department and in Repack departments I observed particles of meat and fat on the belts, and in Weight Price I found a greasy build up under the exit end of the # 1 weight price belt.
