Citation: At approximately 04;45 while performing 01B02 Preoperational Sanitation in Breast Deboning . I went into the electrical supply room to lock out the department, at this time I observed 5 or 6 Seal Shields prompted against the wall and setting on the floor. There was fat and residue on them from previous days production. At this time I applied USDA Reject , Tag No. B40197839 to the shields and notified Mr. a noncompliance would be issued .These shields cannot set on the floor, as this causes unsanitary conditions. The establishment is in violation 9CFR416(a)and 9CFR416(b) ,and 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 9CFR part 500.
