Citation: At proximately 1830 hours while I was walking through the plant, I observed flooding at thigh deboning area. Immediately, I took a regulatory control action by tagging the outlets lead to the cut up area and the stairs lead to the evisceration department by US Reject tag # B40197871. I notified Mr. the Second Shift Manager. I observed the establishment starting the corrective action by identifying the cause and fixing the problem. At approximately 1900 hours the tag was removed and the area was released after ensuring that sanitary conditions were restored and no product was involved.
