Establishment No.: m09958

USDA Inspection Report: 13 Aug 2010

Code: 01C02
Violation: 416.13(c), 416.2(d), 416.4(d)

Citation: At approximately 9:00 while performing a 01C02 upon entering the current cooler I was struck in the face with water dropping from the ceiling. Further investigation revealed that an area about 8 ft. X 8 ft on the ceiling had condensation. The light fixture in that area also had condensation on it and the condensation was dripping on a lamb carcass. U.S. retained tag B18896943 was placed on the carcass and plant Manager Mr. [redacted] was notified of the condensation issue. Condensation has not been an issue in this cooler and Mr. [redacted] stated the they had cleaned the sausage stuffer and table in an adjoining area with the cooler door open. He felt the condensation was due to the hot water being used in the adjoining room with the door to the cooler open. He immediately began wiping down the ceiling tiles and closed the cooler door to the adjoining room. Upon drying the cooler ceiling and light fixture operations were allowed to resume. This is a violation of 416.13 (c) "Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP's.",416.4 (d) "Product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, storage, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments." and 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." Mr. [redacted] was given this NR as written documentation of their failure to meet USDA requirements.

Regulation:

416.13(c) Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOPís.

416.2(d) Ventilation. 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.
