Citation: At approximately 1710 hours, while I was walking through the Leg Grinding Department, I observed leaking from tube connection of the tube runs horizontally above the conveyor leading to the grinder. The water drops were dripping directly on the product. I took a regulatory control action by stopping the line immediately and tagged the conveyor with US Rejected tag# B36279376. The product was retained with US Retained tag# B36279353. Mr. [redacted] Supervisor of Leg Grinding Department was informed. The corrective action was taken. At 1740 hours, the US Rejected tag was removed after reinspection of the conveyor and the grinder . The establishment failed to comply with 9 CFR 416.14 and 9 CFR416.2(e).document serves as written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirement(s) could result in additional regulatory action as described in 9 CFR 500.
