USDA Inspection Report: 13 Oct 2011

Code: 01C02
Violation: 416.13(c), 416.14, 416.2(d)

Citation: In the clean room line# [redacted] at the product freezer exit, there is a chute funneling the excess fully cooked diced chicken from the belt down a stainless steal pipe. The diced chicken from the pipe is caught in bulk container then later dumped back onto the conveyor belt going to the bagging machine. At 1030pm I observed condensation on the outside of the pipe that is used to funnel the chicken down to the bulk container. The condensation was running onto a piece of plastic the plant had put around the pipe. The condensation from the plastic dripped three times in the bulk container that contained approximately 30 pounds of diced chicken. I took regulatory control action of the affected diced chicken that had condensation dripping into it with tag#B36279308. I notified the floor supervisor [redacted] of the contaminated box of diced chicken immediately. He took corrective action(s) and I removed the tag. At 10:40pm I notified GPM [redacted]
