Citation: July 7, 2010 07:40hrs While performing a scheduled operational inspection procedure in the large salting room and the large cooler, the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) Inspector-In-Charge, [redacted] made the following observations and took the regulatory control actions listed: 1. Two, yellow, fiberglass grates used as floor trough covers with multiple spots of black mold in the large salting room placed atop a tarp covering 50 pound bags of kosher rock salt used in the kashering process. FSIS Forms 6502-1 #B39133011 and #B39133011 were applied to the grates, rejecting them. Mr. [redacted] salting room technician, promptly was informed verbally of the noncompliance. U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Title 9, Chapter III, Section 416.4(b) states: "Non-food-contact surfaces of facilities, equipment, and utensils used in the operation of the establishment must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product." 2. One, 55 gallon, covered container of caustic cleaning agent in the large salting room. FSIS Form 6502-1 #B39133010 was applied to the container, rejecting it. Mr. [redacted] salting room supervisor, was verbally informed of the noncompliance. U.S. CFR, Section 416.4(c) states: "Cleaning compounds, sanitizing agents, processing aids, and other chemicals used by an establishment... must be used, handled, and stored in a manner that will not adulterate product or create insanitary conditions." 3. One, unwaxed cardboard case containing 39 pounds of fresh chicken legs bearing the lot number 1018745 in the large cooler was damp with an unknown liquid and broken open. One of the immediate containers, a plastic bag, had also ruptured and a chicken leg was observed in direct contact with the dampened cardboard of the shipping container. FSIS Form 6502-1 #B39133006 was applied to the case, retaining it. Shipping and receiving manager, [redacted] was immediately notified of the noncompliance. U.S. CFR, Section 416.4(d) states: "Product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, storage, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments." 4. At approximately 08:45hrs, Inspector [redacted] returned to the large salting room with Mr. [redacted] to find that the tags he had applied and the yellow grates to which he had applied them had been moved and separated from one another. U.S. CFR 416.6 states: "...Only an FSIS program employee may remove a 'U.S. Rejected'' tag. This document serves as written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements may result in additional regulatory and/or administrative action(s).
