USDA Inspection Report: 1 Jul 2011
Citation: On 07/01/2011, at approximately 0538 hours, while performing ISP task 01B02 (Pre-operational sanitation), in the Tray Packing department I observed in both wrap machines: pieces of meat, fat and plastic in the bottom gear portion of the machines along with a greasy build up of oil. I notified Mr. (QA Technician) and Mr. (3rd Shift Maintenance supervisor) of the noncompliances and rejected the machines by applying US Reject Tags B40197860 and B40197859 to the wrap machines. The machines were cleaned, re-inspected, and released at 0635 hours. I notified Mr. and Mr. that a NR would be issued for this noncompliance. This is a violation of 9 CFR416.4(b) and the establishment's SSOP plan. The establishment has been notified both orally and in writing of this noncompliance. Failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in further administrative action as described in 9 CFR part 500.
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.
