USDA Inspection Report: 8 Sep 2010

Code: 01C02
Violation: 416.4(a), 416.4(b), 416.4(d)

Citation: On September 8, 2010 at approximately 1400 hours I observed the following noncompliance. The hot dog peeler had yellow/brownish oil running from the gear box on the top of the peeler approximately 3/8 of an inch wide, and approximately 26 inches long. Also noted that where the three inch black vacuum hose connects to the peeler base it had a build up of a grey/black foreign material covering approximately 70% of the inside of this stainless steel connection. I also observed that inside the vacuum chamber there were multiple particles of a green powder substance ranging in size from 1/8 X 1/8 of an inch to one piece being 3/4 X 3/4 of an inch. These particles were too numerous to count. A U.S. Reject tag #B38685298 was applied to the hot dog peeler. Mr. [redacted] was informed of this noncompliance.
