USDA Inspection Report: 5 Jul 2011

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

Citation: July 5, 2011 10:15-10:35 hours While performing a scheduled, 01B02, preoperational sanitation inspection procedure in the processing department, I made the following observations: 1. Product residue, off-white in color, adhering to the stainless steel ceiling above the chute that conveys poultry carcasses from the immersion chiller to the main conveyor belts at the point it enters the processing department. Approximately two (2) square feet of this non-direct food contact surface were affected. 2. Off-white product residue, primarily poultry fat, adhering to the interior of the stainless steel ventilation shaft of the pneumatic bag opener at the end of the conveyor belt running perpendicular to the deboning table. Approximately two (2) square inches of this non- food contact surface were affected. 3. Gray contamination, having the appearance of soil, resulting from an uncontrolled water flush of the aluminum continuous plate fins of the first overhead refrigeration unit and residing on the exterior of five (5), covered, waxed and unwaxed cardboard boxes containing packaging materials located on the shelving units above the shrink wrap oven in the tray pack room. 4. Black mold and product residue affecting approximately two (2) square feet of an I-beam and its adjacent wall near the hand washing sink in the processing department, both non-food contact surfaces. The processing department's co-manager, Mr. [redacted] immediately directed establishment employees to initiate corrective actions to restore the sanitary conditions of the affected areas. I released the processing department after this had been accomplished to my satisfaction at approximately 10:45 hours. These observations constitute failures to comply with the United States Code of Federal Regulations, Title 9, Chapter III, Animals and Animal Products, Sections 416.13(a) and 416.13(c). The processing department's co-manager, Mr. [redacted] was notified of the noncompliances verbally promptly. Prior to these discoveries, Mr. [redacted] had released the department and its contents to me. I noted that the establishment's preoperational inspection form had been completed, authenticated, and dated by Mr. [redacted] earlier this morning. This document serves as written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements may result in additional regulatory and/or administrative action(s). Past Similar NRs - Previous Ineffective Plant Actions: An inadequately thorough preoperational inspection of the facilities had been performed prior to their release to FSIS personnel. NR: 21-2011 dated 5/15/2011


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

416.13(c) Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOPís.
