USDA Inspection Report: 7 Sep 2011

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.1, 416.4(b), 416.4(d)

Citation: September 7, 2011 08:05 hours While performing a scheduled, 01C02, operational sanitation inspection procedure in the establishment's evisceration department, I observed product residue and black mold on the underside of the horizontal surface of the pre-chill inspection table, a non-food contact surface. The entire undersurface of the table, constructed of stainless steel rods, was involved. For the fact that this mold was seen to be established on product residue only thirty (30) minutes after today's first slaughtered young chickens had begun to arrive in the department and that mold requires 24 to 48 hours before beginning to colonize, it is reasonable to deduce that this product residue was produced during the previous day's production. I rejected the affected equipment by affixing the FSIS Forms 6502-1 #B39718843. After performing a review of records, I noted that a preoperational inspection of the department and its contents had been conducted at 07:07 hours. The record was authenticated by [redacted] the evisceration department's junior manager. This constitutes a failure to comply with the United States Code of Federal Regulations, Title 9, Chapter III, Animals and Animal Products, Subchapter E, Regulatory Requirements under the Federal Poultry Products Inspection Act, Part 416, Sanitation, Sections 1, 4(b), and 4(d). I promptly alerted Mr. [redacted] of the noncompliance verbally. Federally-inspected food production establishments are required to fulfill the expectations of all applicable requirements of the United States Code of Federal Regulations and Food Safety and Inspection Service. In this instance, management has failed to ensure that a piece of equipment had been thoroughly cleaned and sanitized by the third shift sanitation crew prior to the beginning of operations. This document serves as written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements may result in additional regulatory and/or administrative action(s).


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.

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.

416.4(d) Product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, storage, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments.
