In the evisceration room, on the conveyor, several boning boards are deeply scored and have visible brown stains in their crevices and a few along the surfaces of the exposed product contact zones.

This is in noncompliance with Title 9CFR 416.13(c) which requires each official establishment to monitor daily the implementation of the procedures of the SSOP's.
