Establishment No.: p493
USDA Inspection Report: 24 Jan 2012
Violation: 416.1, 416.2(b)(2), 416.2(d)
Citation: Today I observed the following noncompliance's through out the plant while reviewing the plants PIP list. In the tray pack department the PIP list states that new insulation will be replaced on the steam line at the water tunnels on 1/21/12. This was not complete and the plant did not request an extension for the project. I also observed an overhead light that was rusty in the same area of the tray pack department. In the weigh price cooler the clear vinyl strips at the cooler entrance had mold and build up on them, I notified of the noncompliance. In the shipping cooler the walls had a black build up on them and floor at the tray pack door had debris between the missing metal capping. I notified of the noncompliance. While continuing my check of the PIP list I observed condensation in the packing/805 department and a rusty light above the liver sorter at the giblet chiller. I notified of the noncompliance. In the evisceration department I observed multiple white pipes with loose white plastic wrapping that need rewrapped. This was discussed with the plant at the previous USDA/Plant weekly meeting on 1/19/12 and documented in the weekly MOI. 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.
