Citation: At approximately 0630 hours while performing preoperational sanitation inspection, CSI [redacted] and SPHV [redacted] found the following noncompliances: [newline][newline][1] In the small picking room, there was a large number of 1-2 inch long chicken feathers (too many to count) inside the picking machine (food contact surface) and on wheel underneath the machine (non-food contact surface). U.S. reject tag No. B38033394 was applied to the machine. [newline][newline][2] The gizzard conveyor belt in the evisceration room was loose and laying on the floor (food contact surface). There was 5-6 1/2 centimenter pieces of dried product residue on the wheel of the conveyer belt (non-food contact). U.S reject tag No. B37014171 was applied to the conveyer belt. [newline][3] About 8 grey barrels in the hallway between the picking room and live hold area were not properly labeled inedible or edible containers. Two of the containers still had watery blood on the inside from the previous day's production. U.S. reject tag No. B38033400 were applied to the insanitary barrels. [newline]CSI [redacted] and Dr. [redacted] immediately verbally and visually informed Ms. [redacted] supervisor] of these noncompliances. The regulatory control actions were removed when sanitary conditions were restored.
