Citation: On Monday, 04/11/2011, at approximately 0500 hours, after plant's pre-operational sanitation and prior to the start of operation, I observed the following noncompliance's while performing pre-op sanitation (01B02) procedure, the following was observed: Live Receiving/Kill Room (Area I). Feathers, dirt, fecal material and residue buildup on the surface's of the unloader conveyor and inside the links too numerous to count from previous day's operation. I observed excessive amount of thick brown fecal material and residue buildup at several locations on the inside turning wheels and underneath the frameworks from previous day's operation. After further examination, I observed excessive amount of brown fecal material, residue buildup and feathers on the surface of the live transfer conveyor, frameworks and inside links to the live transfer conveyor from previous day's operation. I rejected the unloader and live transfer conveyors with US Rejected Tag B39 133502 for unsanitary condition. I informed (First Processing Manager) and (Quality Assurance Manager) of my observation. A check of the plant SSOP's forms Live Receiving/Kill Room (Area I) shows no deficiencies for the above noncompliance's. The areas were released for inspections at 0441 hours and signs by designation person. Some of the noncompliance's found were direct product contact surfaces. All noncompliance found were from previous day's operation. There was no product involved at this time.
