Citation: On January 5, 2011 at approximately 0655 hours while performing Pre-Operational Sanitation inspection prior to the start of operations, but after the plant had completed theirs, I observed the following noncompliances: 1. Electric ring knife motor in the processing room with meat and fat build up where the ring knife hangs on the motor when not in use in the processing room. 2. Condensation dripping from the rail and beam between the singer and the polisher on the slaughter floor. 3.
