USDA Inspection Report: 17 Oct 2010

Code: 01C02
Violation: 416.2(g), 416.4(a), 416.4(b)

Citation: October 17, 2010 13:15 hours While performing an operational inspection of two stainless steel perforated tables in the small salting room, I observed several dozen shiny, black particles measuring 1/32-inch in size on their tops, both direct food contact surfaces. Additionally, a white edible barrel being filled in the room had hundreds of the same particles suspended throughout the water it contained. Tracing the water line into the evisceration department, I took a water sample from a set of hoses employees use to clean their aprons and rinse containers, including those used to transport product. The water was similarly contaminated with the same unidentified foreign material. I backtracked further to where this pipe enters the evisceration department and observed that the PVC conduit bifurcates into an approximately 45-foot deadend pipe above the middle of the room. I asked Mr. [redacted] to secure the valves and prevent any access to the water supplied by this particular pipe. He promptly complied with my requests. Both the barrel and table tops were reworked with soap and potable water under my direct supervision. No product was observed to be involved at this time. This is a failure to comply with the US Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Title 9, Chapter III, Sections 416.2(g), 416.4(a), and 416.4(b) and the National Primary Drinking Water regulations found in US CFR Title 40, Part 141. Mr. [redacted] was immediately notified verbally of the noncompliances. This document serves as written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements may result in additional regulatory and/or administrative actions.

Regulation:

416.2(g)(1) Water supply and water, ice, and solution reuse. A supply of running water that complies with the National Primary Drinking Water regulations (40 CFR part 141), at a suitable temperature and under pressure as needed, must be provided in all areas where required (for processing product, for cleaning rooms and equipment, utensils, and packaging materials, for employee sanitary facilities, etc.). If an establishment uses a municipal water supply, it must make available to FSIS, upon request, a water report, issued under the authority of the State or local health agency, certifying or attesting to the potability of the water supply. If an establishment uses a private well for its water supply, it must make available to FSIS, upon request, documentation certifying the potability of the water supply that has been renewed at least semi-annually.

416.4(a) All food-contact surfaces, including food-contact surfaces of utensils and equipment, must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.

416.4(b) 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.
