Citation: AT approximately 0445 hours while performing an ISP task 01B02 (Preoperational Sanitation) in the Thigh Deboning area I observed the scale cover, covering the scale dirty. Looking a little closer ,I found there to be mold, and fat, all over the cover. At this time I notified , and , that I was applying USDA Reject Tag No.B39801570,and would be issuing a noncompliance. Continuing onto the whole bird cooler and breast deboning , I observed the following areas, whole bird cooler, weigh price cooler, tray pack storage area, and breast deboning to be flooded, due to a clogged drain. At this time I paged management, and caution taped all areas involved.. I also told , the plant would receive a noncompliance. and no production would start until the drain was opened, and all the effected areas were cleaned and sanitized.
