Establishment No.: m09819

USDA Inspection Report: 28 Feb 2011

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.2(b)(1), 416.2(b)(2), 416.2(b)(3), 416.2(e)(4), 416.4(a), 416.4(b), 416.4(c)

Citation: The following Sanitary Performance Standards Non-Compliances have been observed and noted as follows: The establishment uses a sanitizer called "[redacted]. The instructions state for kitchens /bathroom use to use 3/4 cup of bleach per gallon of water, let stand 10 minutes/rinse and air dry. There is no documentation maintained and no SSOP reference supporting that these instructions for bleach use are being followed on food contact surfaces and therefore not supporting the safe and effective use of the sanitizing compound. This fails to meet the requirements of 9 CFR 416.4(c). Slaughter floor- The establishment's pre-operational sanitation form was completed and all areas designated "A" (acceptable). There is standing water in the area where the carcass neck area was seen contacting the floor on 2/01. This fails to meet the requirements of 9 CFR 416.2(e)(4). There were fats/greases on the hoist lift switch that is touched by an employee during use. This fails to meet the requirements of 9 CFR 416.4(b). The PVC pipe used to store the hook/gambrel assemblies has residues that touch the hook area, i.e. food contact surface. This fails to meet the requirements of 9 CFR 416.4(a) and 416.13(a). There is broken duct tape used on an electric cord of the splitting saw and also broken duct tape on a wall hook assembly. The broken duct tape will impede proper cleaning/sanitizing procedures. This fails to meet the requirements of 9 CFR 416.4(b). The wall where the brisket saw is mounted, near the left corner, adjacent to the floor joint, is broken open in an area of about 6"x8" in size. This fails to meet the requirements of 9 CFR 416.2(b). The I-beam covering at the cooler door area, on the Lactic Acid application side of the carcass hang area, was broken open and the I-beam is exposed. This fails to meet the requirements of 9 CFR 416.2(b)(1)(2). Knocking room- In the room where the captive bolt and equipment (lactic acid spray) is stored, had a clipboard on top of a rack. The clipboard was filthy. This fails to meet the requirements of 9 CFR 416.4(b). Shipping area- The rear door at the back of the freezer box is not sealing properly (allows light to be seen) and could also allow possible rodent entry. This fails to meet the requirements of 9 CFR 416.2(b)(3). Past similar N/R's. #0016-2010-17169 #0002-2011-17169
