Establishment No.: p533
USDA Inspection Report: 14 Jan 2011
Violation: 416.13(c), 416.4(a), 416.4(b)
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 grease and product residue on the chick-way line shackles at the north west section of the department. I immediately rejected the chick-way line shackles with U.S. tag #B39800556 and notified 1st Processing Manager of the noncompliance. Also the chick-way line rail and chain need cleaned and oiled. Also while continuing my inspection of the department I observed overspray of feathers, chicken and fat particles on overhead lights, some located above product contact surfaces. The chick-way line shackles were a direct product contact surface. After a review of the plants SSOP records for the chiller department no deficiencies were documented and the department was released for USDA inspection at 0435 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.
