USDA Inspection Report: 30 Jun 2010

Code: 01B02
Violation: 416.13(a)

Citation: June 30, 2010 09:40hrs While performing an unscheduled preoperational inspection of the non-kosher room, Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) Inspector-In- Charge, [redacted] observed extensive soiling of a potato peeling machine the establishment uses to remove the skin from chicken feet. The machine had not been completely disassembled prior to inspection. Inspector [redacted] requested that a textured belt that lines the inside wall of the machine be removed. Between the stainless steel wall of the machine and the smooth, inside surface of this belt was observed a compacted mass, 12 inches wide and 1/4-inch thick running around its inside circumference. The mass was composed of chicken foot skin, feathers, and fat from the last time the machine had been used, 06/24/10. FSIS Form 6502-1 #B38600539 was applied to the machine, rejecting it. Processing co-manager, [redacted] was verbally informed of the noncompliance promptly. U.S. Code of Federal Regulations, Title 9, Chapter III, Section 416.13(a) states: "Each official establishment shall conduct the pre-operational procedures in the Sanitation SOP's before the start of operations." Due to the extent of soiling, it was obvious that management had not performed a thorough preoperational inspection of this machine. This document serves as written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements may result in additional regulatory and/or administrative action(s).


416.13(a) Each official establishment shall conduct the pre-operational procedures in the Sanitation SOPís before the start of operations.
