Violation: 416.2(d), 416.4(b), 416.4(d)

Citation: On March 2, 2011 at approximately at 0645 hours while performing Pre-Operational Sanitation inspection prior to the start of operations, but after the plant had completed theirs, I observed the following non-compliances: 1. In the cut room the motor and supporting framework for the moving boning table had approximately 5-6 pieces of fat and meat ranging from 1/4 to 1 inch. 2. The floor of the cut room had approximately 3-4 pieces of fat scattered under the digital scale in front of the west wall and under the moving boning table. 3. In the cut room the pipes and beam of the east wall (behind the moving boning table) had condensation dripping into one combo bins. The ceiling above the digital scale next to the moving boning table had areas of beaded condensation. 4. The floor of the Chad cabinet in the slaughter room had approximately 5-6 pieces of blue sponge. No regulatory control action was taken because the establishment took immediate corrective actions. Ms. [redacted] QC, was informed of these non-compliances. The establishment is not in compliance with the following regulations: 9 CFR 416.4(b) which states in part "all non-food contact surface of facilities, equipment, and utensils used in the operation of the establishment must be cleaned and sanitized as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and adulteration of product". 9 CFR 416.4(d) which states in part: "product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, storage, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments". 9 CFR 416.2(d) which states in part: "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".
