USDA Inspection Report: 23 Apr 2012

Code: 01D01
Violation:  416.1, 416.4(b)

Citation: On April 20, 2012, after Dr. finding of grease and contamination on carcasses in the cooler on a previous day, I checked the railing. Standing on the inspection stand and looking up, I noticed that the blue rail has flaking rust and spots of grease that could fall on carcass, possibly causing contamination. As I was walking off the kill floor, looking up there was a glob of grease about the size of a quarter on the rail ,where it turns before the scale. I informed of the situation and pointed it out to her. She stated that they would take care of it over the weekend. Dr did a cooler check on thursday April 19th and said that the carcasses looked good.
