Establishment No.: p493
USDA Inspection Report: 16 Feb 2012
Citation: At approximately 10:45pm while performing my scheduled "SSOP Record Keeping" procedure in Tray Pack I noticed the SSOP was last signed and dated at 5:30pm. This is a noncompliant of Record Keeping. The entire Tray Pack room had lunch and breaks within this alloted time. Because the records are not showing any action of inspecting production areas or midshift clean up within the last 5 hours I immediately took regulatory control action and placed U.S. Retained Tag #B26898622 and notified the Supervisor, Quality Contorl, and the Designee responsible for the Tray Pack room. The plant took immediate corrective action and sent all the workers to a 15 minute break, wash and sanitized the entire Tray Pack area. The plants SSOP states: [redacted] Failure to meet regulatory requirements could result in additional administrative action as described in 9 CFR part 500.
