Violation: 416.13(c)

Citation: At approximately 0633 hours, Friday, December 30, 2011, Preoperational Inspection-insanitary product contact surfaces: I performed Preoperational SSOP Review and Observation task after plant personnel  had inspected and released the East Packaging 1 area. I conducted lock-out tag-out and found the following noncompliance: 1) There were approximately 4 small pieces of meat tissue on the face of the bacon slicer that is next to the blade. Each piece was approximately 1/16" in size.2) A white piece of meat tissue was found on the meat wash rack located in the meat wash sink. The piece was approximately 1/2" in length.3) A residue was found on the inside of the bacon slicer blade. Brown residue came off on my fingers when I ran my fingers across the blade. 4) The bacon  scrap/catch pan had approximately 3 pieces of tissue inside it which were each approximately 1/16" in size. 5) The white [redacted] board that is used to hold the bacon while the bacon  hooks are removed  had numerous pitted places on both sides of the board. The pitted spots, approximately 1/4 of the board, had brown  residue on it. [redacted] was verbally and visually notified of all the above noncompliance. I did not use any US Rejected tags because all units were cleaned in my presence and the [redacted] board  was removed from the area and replaced  with a different one. All units were reinspected and found to be acceptable.The area was released at approximately 0615 hours.
