USDA Inspection Report: 1 Aug 2011
Violation: 416.2(c), 416.4(b), 416.4(d)
Citation: On 08/01/2011, at 0710 hours I entered the packing cooler with SCSI , I saw water and ice coming out of the ice chute along the wall and observed the water splashing off the wall and floor on to the out side of box product sitting on a skid next to the ice chute. There were 25 boxes of [redacted] 8 piece cut up fryer I took immediate action by applying US Retain Tag # B39801626 to the skid shipping card and notified Mr. of the noncompliance. At approximately the same time SCSI observed in the tray storage room, trash and trays on the floor, he rejected the room and US Reject tag #B40197801 and notified Mr. ( Further Processing Supervisor) of the noncompliance. SCSI also informed and showed VP of Operation the conditions of the strip curtains in the shipping and the tray pack coolers. SCSI also notified Ms. (Group Leader Evis.) a round Halogen light above the center reprocessing station that was brought up in a plant meeting two weeks ago that was not working. The establishment has been notified both orally and in writing about these noncompliances and that a NR would be issued. This is a violation of 9 CFR416.2(c): 416.4(b); and 416.4(d) and the establishments SOP plan. Failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in further administrative action as described in 9 CFR part 500.
416.2(c) Lighting of good quality and sufficient intensity to ensure that sanitary conditions are maintained and that product is not adulterated must be provided in areas where food is processed, handled, stored, or examined; where equipment and utensils are cleaned; and in hand-washing areas, dressing and locker rooms, and toilets.
