USDA Inspection Report: 12 Sep 2011

Code: 01C02
Violation: 416.13(c), 416.3(c)

Citation: September 12, 2011 11:43 hours While performing a scheduled, 01C02, operational sanitation inspection procedure in this establishment's small salting room, I observed a white, plastic, square-shaped forty (40) gallon capacity container the facility identifies in a written prerequisite program as permitted for use with edible product being moved out of the compartment. Inside this container, I observed a white, plastic, four (4) gallon bucket that was also square in shape, contained poultry purge and product residue, and was devoid of markings. Permitted use for the second, smaller container is not included in the prerequisite program. Further, in the recent past, I have encountered other containers identical to it being used to transport and store chemicals and refuse. I rejected the undedicated container by affixing the FSIS Form 6502-1 #B39718844. To state that this particular container had ever contained chemicals, refuse, or inedible material prior to its use as a direct food contact surface would be purely speculative. No product was observed to have been involved at this time. This constitutes a failure to comply with the United States Code of Federal Regulations, Title 9, Chapter III, Animals and Animal Products, Subchapter E, Regulatory Requirements under the Federal Poultry Products Inspection Act, Part 416, Sanitation, Sections 3(c) and 13(c). Federally-inspected food production establishments are required to fulfill the expectations of all applicable requirements of the United States Code of Federal Regulations and Food Safety and Inspection Service. In this instance, management has failed to prevent an undesignated container from being used as a direct food contact surface in a food processing environment. This document serves as written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements may result in additional regulatory and/or administrative action(s).

Regulation:

416.13(c) Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOPís.

416.3(c) Receptacles used for storing inedible material must be of such material and construction that their use will not result in the adulteration of any edible product or in the creation of insanitary conditions. Such receptacles must not be used for storing any edible product and must bear conspicuous and distinctive marking to identify permitted uses.
