USDA Inspection Report: 4 Jan 2012

Code: 01C02
Violation: 416.13(b), 416.2(d)

Citation: On January 4, 2012 at approximately 1030 hours, while performing Sanitation Performance Standard verification task, I observed heavily beaded condensation in numerous locations above the green line chiller. Five smaller patches of beaded condensation, approximately 2’ x 2’ were observed along the ceiling above the middle section of the chiller near the Confucius line and control room 1. A large area of heavily beaded condensation was observed covering an approximately 10’ x 10’ area of the ceiling at the back of the green line chiller adjacent to the feather room. Ms. Packing Supervisor, was notified of the deficiency at approximately 1032 and she immediately dispatched an employee to wipe down the condensation. Ms. QC Manager, was notified of the deficiencies at approximately 1034. [newline][newline]The establishment’s Pre-Operational SSOP records for this date indicate that overhead structures in the Chilling Area were acceptable at the time of Pre-Op inspection and Operational SSOP records indicate that the Packing – Chiller Area Overhead was acceptable at 6:19 AM. [newline][newline]The deficiencies observed and described above constitute noncompliance with the regulatory requirements of 9 CFR 416.1 and 416.2(d). In addition, the establishment’s written SSOP, page 4, states, “ [redacted] ”. Therefore, the areas of beaded condensation also constitute a noncompliance with regulatory requirements of 9 CFR 416.13(b), “Each official establishment shall conduct all other procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s at the frequencies specified”. [newline][newline]Mr. Plant Manager, was verbally notified of this noncompliance at approximately 1038 hours and in writing with the issuance of this noncompliance record.


416.13(b) Each official establishment shall conduct all other procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s at the frequencies specified.

416.2(d) Ventilation adequate to control odors, vapors, and condensation to the extent necessary to prevent adulteration of product and the creation of insanitary conditions must be provided.
