Establishment No.: p493
USDA Inspection Report: 8 Mar 2012
Violation: 416.13(c), 416.4(a), 416.4(b)
Citation: At approximately 0746 hours, while performing my routine inspection, I observed the following noncompliance in the Weigh Price Box Room; I observed two roll of plastic films on shelves without covers. At close examination, there were chicken fat pieces on the direct product contact surface of the two plasticfilms. One plasticfilm (Coleman Organic Boneless skinless Thigh) had three pieces of chicken fat ranging from 1/8 inch to 1/4 inches. The clear plastic film had two pieces of chicken fat ranging from 1/8 inch to 3/8 inches. The second shelf from the top had chicken fat particles approximately eight to ten with accumulation of grease covering three inch wide to six inches long underneath the two roll of plastic films. I retained rollers of plastic films with US Retained Tag B40 170374 for unsanitary condition. The roll of plastic films is use to tray pack's product. I informed (Further Processing Superintendent), and (Quality Assurance) of my observation. The two roll of plastic films were condemn by management. There was no product involved at this time. After reviewing the plant's Operational Sanitation record (Weigh Price Department), I found no entry documented prior to my observation of the noncompliance. Establishment management has received oral and written notification concerning this noncompliance. This document serves as a written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirement could result in additional enforcement action described in 9 CFR part 500.
