USDA Inspection Report: 18 Aug 2011

Code: 01D01
Violation: 416.2(b)(1), 416.2(b)(2), 416.2(d), 416.4(b), 416.4(d)

Citation: At approximately 1310 hours while performing an SPS verification procedure, CSI found the following noncompliances:

I went in the packing department and noticed water leaking from a ceiling tile onto large brown paper packaging bags that were sitting on a pallett directely under the leak. No reject tag was needed because I immediately notified Ms. plant manager, verbally and visually of this noncompliance and Ms. and a employee immediately removed the bags and discarded the damage ones in my presence.
As I continued my inspection, I went in the cooler off the processing room, I noticed in the corner a pipe with large beaded drops of water hanging over uncovered product. I found more condensation on the ceiling from wall to wall with large beaded drops of water in the corner where product is stored and not covered. I also found more condensation hanging off the underside of the freezer unit over more uncovered product. I immediately notified Ms. plant manager verbally and visually. The employees restored sanitary conditions by covering the exposed product and wiping the condensation down. No product adulteration was seen.
