USDA Inspection Report: 18 Oct 2010
Violation: 416.13(c), 416.4(a)
Citation: At approximately 0515 hrs., after the plants pre-operational sanitation and prior to the start of operations, I observed the following noncompliance's while performing ISP code 01B02 procedure for pre-operational sanitation. In the chiller department I observed an excessive amount of product residue build up on the chiller auger and paddle at the end of the chiller exit. I immediately rejected the unit with U.S. tag #B39133617 and notified 1st processing manager of the noncompliance. While continuing my pre-op inspection in the cut up department, at approximately 0645 hrs. I observed black specks (UFM's) in one of the stainless steel tanks. I immediately notified 2nd processing manager of the noncompliance and the tank was recleaned and sanitized in my presence. All deficiencies were direct product contact surfaces. After a review of the SSOP records for pre-operational sanitation, no deficiencies were documented for the chiller and the department was released for USDA inspection at 0445 hrs. The tanks in cut-up were documented as rejected for (5) product residue and marked cleaned and sanitized, inspected/accepted and the department was released for USDA inspection at 0638 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.
416.13(c) Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s.
416.4(a) All food-contact surfaces, including food-contact surfaces of utensils and equipment, must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.
