Citation: On Friday, November 11, 2011, at approximately 0403 hours, after the plant's pre-operational sanitation was performed and released to USDA, I performed a pre-op sanitation (01B02) procedure and observed the following noncompliance: In the Live receiving Department; Unit #11 (Line Exit New York Room to Live Hang Area Entrance) condensation on three overhead dirty white pipes in the New York room over the East and West shackle lines. Rail dust buildup on the shackle rails on the East and West shackle lines in the New York room from the previous day's operation. I informed (Quality Assurance) of my observation. While continuing my inspection in the Thigh Deboning Department at approximately 0555 hours, the following was observed; there were chicken fat particles of various sizes, and grease buildup on the product contact surface of the two conveyor belts from the previous day's operation. I rejected the two conveyor belts with US Rejected Tag B39 801172 for unsanitary condition. I informed (Sanitation Manager) of my observations. A check of the plant's SSOP's Form (Live Receiving Department) shows no deficiencies for the above noncompliance. The department was released at 2203 hours for inspection. A check of the plant's SSOP's Form (Thigh Deboning Department) shows no deficiencies for the above noncompliance. The department was released at 0351 hours for inspection. All noncompliances found were from previous day's operation. There was no product involved at this time. Establishment management has received oral and written communication concerning this noncompliance. Continued failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional enforcement action as described in 9 CFR part 500.
