Establishment No.: p493
USDA Inspection Report: 2 Nov 2011
Violation: 416.13(c), 416.4(a), 416.4(b)
Citation: At approximately 0410 hrs., after the plants pre-operational sanitation and prior to the start of operations I observed the following noncompliance's while performing the 01B02 procedure for pre-operational sanitation. In the picking room department I observed an excessive amount of product residue build up on the finger hubs of the south side picker #4. I immediately rejected picker #4 with U.S. tag #B39800906 and notified of the noncompliance. After a review of the plants SSOP records for the picking room department the picker #4 was documented as acceptable and the department was released for USDA inspection at 1201 hrs. While continuing my pre-op inspection in the chiller/packing department I observed overspray on the ceiling at the giblet chiller area, a blood clot in the liver chiller, and fat particles on a stainless steel table. All deficiencies were immediately cleaned in my presence. At 0540 hrs. while continuing pre-op inspection in the deboning department I observed numerous pieces of chicken fat various sizes in the repack theroformer #2. I immediately rejected the #2 repack thermoformer with U.S. tag # B39800903 and notified of the noncompliance. After a review of the SSOP records for the breast deboning department the repack thermoformer #2 was documented as rejected recleaned and sanitized and released for USDA inspection at 0528 hrs. This document serves as a written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional enforcement action described in 9 CFR part 500.
