Citation: At approximately 0640 hrs., after the plants pre-operational sanitation and prior to the start of operations, I observed the following noncompliance's while performing the 01B02 procedure for pre-operational sanitation. In the cut-up department I observed product residue build up on the shackles, guide bar and black grease on the transfer conveyor. I immediately rejected the unit with U.S. tag #B39133616 and notified the 2nd processing manager of the noncompliance. While continuing my pre-op inspection in the deboning department at approximately 0650 hrs., I observed product residue build up on the front half breast conveyor and inside the above chute. I immediately rejected the unit with U.S. tag #B39133615 and notified of the noncompliance. After a review of the SSOP records for pre-operational sanitation, no deficiencies were documented for the cut-up department and the area was released for USDA inspection at 0625 hrs. No deficiencies were documented for the breast deboning department and the department was released for USDA inspection at 0635 hrs. 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.
