Code: 01B02
Violation: 416.13(c), 416.4(a), 416.4(b), 416.4(d)

Citation: On September 10, 2010 at approximately 0640 hours I observed the following noncompliances: The Handtmann Stuffer with a build up meat and fat particles on the worm screw and throat where the product goes from the product hopper to facilitate the stuffing of casings. This product residue was approximately two inches by five inches on the worm screw, and scattered sporadically around the throat of the stuffer. A U. S. Reject tag # A8065765 was applied to this Handtmann Stuffer. I also noted on the  [redacted] Machine a build up of product residue on the top of the framework directly under the product conveyor that conveys the stacks of patties from the machine. This build up consisted of numerous particles (too numerous to count) of meat and fat from the previous days production ranging in size from one quarter of an inch to one half inch in size. No regulatory control action was taken on the  [redacted] machine since the company took immediate corrective action to correct this noncompliance. Mr. [redacted] was verbally informed of these noncomplianes. This document serves as written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirement(s) could result in additional regulatory or administrative action. 9 CFR 416.13(c) States in part that each official Establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP's. 9 CFR 416.4(a) States in part that all food contact surfaces including food contact surfaces or utensils, and equipment must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product. 9 CFR 416.4(b) States in part that that all 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. 9 CFR 416.4(d) States in part that product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, storage, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments.
