USDA Inspection Report: 17 Aug 2010

Code: 01B02
Violation: 416.13(a), 416.16(a)

Citation: August 17, 2010 09:50 hours While performing a preoperational inspection of the processing department after it had been released by processing co-manager, Mr. [redacted] Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) Inspector-In-Charge, [redacted] observed the following: chicken fat and meat on the handles and blades of several boning knives and the inside surface of the cardboard lid containing them; poultry residue on the inside surface of the grinder hopper, auger housing, and face plate; patches of rust up to 1/4- by 1/3-inch in size on one of the mechanical separating machine's augers; several smears of black machine grease and debris from sawing PVC on the processing room floor under the bone saw stations; and dirt and black machine grease on newly-installed conveyor belt rollers. Inspector [redacted] rejected the entire processing department by applying FSIS Form 6502-1 #B39133015 and maintained control of the keys to all locked-out devices. This is a failure to comply with the United States Code of Federal Regulations, Title 9, Chapter III, Sections 416.13(a) and 416.16(a). Mr. [redacted] was promptly verbally informed of the noncompliances. According to the presence of his initials on the establishment's preoperational inspection form, Mr. [redacted] had conducted and completed his preoperational inspection at 08:50 hours earlier this morning. Federal law requires establishments to perform preoperational inspections of all equipment and facilities prior to the start of production. Mr. [redacted] and his staff quickly restored sanitary conditions to all areas of concern in the processing department to Inspector [redacted] satisfaction and the department was released at 10:38 hours. 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.

416.16(a) Each official establishment shall maintain daily records sufficient to document the implementation and monitoring of the Sanitation SOPís and any corrective actions taken. The establishment employee(s) specified in the Sanitation SOPís as being responsible for the implementation and monitoring of the procedure(s) specified in the Sanitation SOPís shall authenticate these records with his or her initials and the date.
