Establishment No.: p493
USDA Inspection Report: 15 Feb 2012
Violation: 416.13(c), 416.4(a), 416.4(b)
Citation: At approximately 0530 hrs., after the plants pre-operational sanitation and prior to the start of operations, I observed the following noncompliance's while performing pre-operational sanitation. In the breast deboning department I observed an excessive amount of product residue in the linkage of the white trim conveyor, and chicken/fat particles on top of the conveyor. I immediately rejected the white trim conveyor with U.S. tag #B40170487 and I notified the sanitation manager of the noncompliance. After a review of the plants SSOP records for pre-op no deficiencies were documented and the department was released for USDA inspection at 0515 hrs. While continuing my inspection of the department I observed chicken meat dried in the repack #2 and also fat particles in the machine. I immediately rejected the repack #2 machine with U.S. tag #B40 170490 and notified the sanitation manager of the noncompliance. After a review of the SSOP records for the repack #2 machine no deficiencies were documented and the department was released at 0456 hrs. for USDA inspection. 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.
