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

Citation: On September 13, 2010 at approximately 0640 I observed the following noncompliances: The first grinder used to coarse grind the product for the final grinder with a grey black foreign material along the lip where the worm fits in the grinder throat. This lip is approximately 1/2 inch wide and completely circumferencing this lip where the worm fits into the grinder head. A U. S. Reject tag # B38685281 was applied to this grinder. I also noted numerous meat and fat particles on the ceiling above the frozen block chipper in the processing room. These meat and fat particles ranged in size from one quarter of an inch to three quarter inch in size. No regulatory control action was taken on these meat and fat particles since the company took immediate action to correct this noncompliance. Mr. [redacted] was verbally informed of these noncompliances. 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.
