Code: 01C02
Violation: 416.13(a), 416.4(a), 416.13(c)

Citation: At approximately 1115 hours while observing several employees boning beef in the boning room adjacent to the shipping floor I observed the following noncompliance. I observed a plant employee drop a piece of meat approximately 2 pounds in size on the floor. He proceeded to pick it up and immediately place it on the boning table. I immediately stopped production and notified the foreman. After the affected piece of meat was placed in the inedible barrel I applied U.S Reject tag # B19 170787 to the boning table. The boning table was then cleared of the remaining boneless beef. It was cleaned, sanitized, and reinspected prior to being used again. This is a violation of FSIS regulation 416.13(c) and the establishments SSOP. I informed Mr. [redacted] of the noncompliance orally and in writing with this NR.
