Establishment No.: p493
USDA Inspection Report: 1 Mar 2012
Citation: At approximately 0535 hrs. after the plants pre-operational sanitation and prior to the start of operations, I observed the following noncompliance while performing pre-operational sanitation. In the breast deboning/repak department I observed one piece of boneless skinless breast meat approximately 3" in length and 2" in width,in the repak thermoformer #2 machine. I immediately rejected the repak thermoformer #2 machine with U.S. tag #B39801144 and notified the sanitation manager of the noncompliance. After a review of the SSOP records for the repak machines, the repak thermoformer #2 was documented as rejected for meat pieces at 0518 hrs., recleaned and sanitized, and released for USDA inspection at 0522hrs. 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.
