Violation:  416.1, 416.2(e)(3), 416.3(a), 416.4(b), 381.129

Citation: At approximately 2015 hours, while performing an unscheduled 01C02 procedure task I observed the following in the Storage Cooler and performed an unscheduled 04B04 procedure task; while verifying finished product labels in the storage cooler twenty four cases of consumer size packaged, raw ready to cook [redacted] Halal Chicken Legs that are individually labeled and ready for shipment are bearing the claims "Grown without growth stimulants or hormones" on the principal display panel of the consumer package. The claims on the principal display panel of the label are not followed by and do not address the disclaimer statement "Federal regulations prohibit the use of hormones" as required. Twenty four cases of [redacted] Halal Chicken Legs retained with Retained tag# B39 718932. I verbally notified Quality Control and 2nd shift Processing Manager immediately of the non-compliance. This is a failure to meet: 9CFR 381.129(a). 9CFR 381.129(b).

416.4(b) Non-food-contact surfaces of facilities, equipment, and utensils used in the operation of the establishment must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.
