USDA Inspection Report: 1 Jun 2012

Code: 01D01
Violation: 416.1

Citation: At approximately 1350 while conducting Operational SSOP review and observation of the Kill Floor and Live Hang areas, I discovered congealle, jelled blood between 7 and one (1) foot deep on the Kill Floor. The stand where slaughter personnel are positioned, which is about 6 off the floor, was covered to overflowing and congealled blood was piled underneith to overflowing. A wash basin on the oposite side of the room was full of dirty water that was not draining, but was overflowing the sides of the wash basin onto the floor. I notified [redacted] Live Hang Supervisor, that the condition of the Kill Floor was insanitary and that, as Dr. [redacted] had discussed with him the day prior, sanitation was immediately necessary in the room. [redacted] told the Live Hang personnel to stop hanging and, when the birds had stopped passing into the room, [redacted] went into the Kill Floor with a plastic shovel and scooped the congealed blood into the doorway that conects the Kill Floor to the Bleedout Room. I told him that he would need to address the insanitary overflow from the sink basin as well. He told the Live Hang personnel to begin hanging birds again, shrugged at me, and walked away. As corrective measures by the Live Hang Supervisor were inadequate in restoring sanitary conditions, I took regulatory control of the Kill Floor by placing US Retain/Reject tag B39416905 on the room.
This document serves as written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirement(s) could result in additional regulatory or administrative action.


416.1 Each official establishment must be operated and maintained in a manner sufficient to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and to ensure that product is not adulterated.
