USDA Inspection Report: 13 Jul 2010

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.1, 416.2(b)(1), 416.2(d)

Citation: At approximately 0800 on 7/13/10, while performing a general walk-through of the plant prior to resuming operations after a suspension, the following deficiency was found. In the storage cooler, there was dripping condensation in four locations: the end of the two middle rails near the cooling unit, from the cooling unit itself, and from the other end of one of the middle rails. The rails did not have product hanging from them or underneath them, and no product was affected. Plant personnel immediately moved the six beef carcasses and lamb fronts that were in this cooler into the chill cooler to prevent contamination. The cooler door from the processing room was tagged with US Rejected # B32675603, and the cooler door from the chill cooler was tagged with US Rejected # B18896941. This is a violation of 416.1, "Each official establishment must be operated and maintained in a manner sufficient to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and to ensure that product is not adulterated," and of 416.2(d), "Ventilation adequate to control odors, vapors, and condensation to the extent necessary to prevent adulteration of product and the creation of insanitary conditions must be provided," and of 416.2(b)(1), "Construction. (1) Establishment buildings, including their structures, rooms, and compartments must be of sound construction, be kept in good repair, and be of sufficient size to allow for processing, handling, and storage of product in a manner that does not result in product adulteration or the creation of insanitary conditions." Mr. [redacted] and Mr. [redacted] were notified verbally. This document serves as written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements may result in additional regulatory and/or administrative action. Mr. [redacted] was also advised of his right to appeal this decision under 9 CFR 306.5. Past Similar NRs - Previous Ineffective Plant Actions: Plant mgt has been doing several visual inspections of the cooler per day to insure no product is affected by dripping condensation. This was a leak that went undetected until now. Mgt and owners are doing everything in their power to stop the condensation. NR: 37-2010 dated 6/22/2010
