Citation: On 8/20/10 while performing ISP procedure 01B02, preoperational sanitation, the following deficiencies were noted: 1) The bacon slicer in the processing room had numerous tissue-like particles disseminated throughout the surfaces of the machine. There was a 3mm fat-like particle on the blade. The inside of the gearbox cover had rust on its inside surface. U.S. Rejected tag #B38685216 was applied to the slicer. 2) The underside of the cutting board of the table in the large smoke room had black and brown rust-like smears on its surface. 3) The band saw used for splitting carcasses on the kill floor had fat-like tissue on both the forward and rear saw guides. 4) The table with the extension ring for the reservoir for the Handtmann VF 50 had a non-white outdoor coat draped on the table and over the extension ring. There was no indication the establishment had identified these deficiencies. Item 1 was released after the establishment cleaned and sanitized the slicer.
