Citation: On April 25th, 2012 I was reviewing the plants response from Mr. , Director of QA, to the Non-Compliance Record (IOO5807042223N/1) that I documented on 4/20/12 concerning the Sir Steak Slicer not being Pre-op before use. In the Preventative Measures that the plant listed concerning the NR, it states, The equipment was added to the Thin Slice department pre-operational inspection form as of 4/24/12.
