Violation: 416.1, 416.4(b)

Citation: At approximately 0705 hours, while performing a scheduled preoperational sanitation inspection on the slaughter floor, I observed the following Sanitation Performance Standards noncompliance: 1. The top rail of the beef gutting stand had dried blood on the outside surface from the previous days operation. 2. The cooler door and adjacent wall had grease from the rail and hooks on an area approximately 2 ft. x 2 ft. The kill floor foreman was notified and both areas were immediately cleaned and sanitized. There were no product contact areas involved and no further regulatory control action was taken. [redacted] was verbally notified of the noncompliance and the failure to comply with sections 416.1 and 416.2(b) of the Meat Inspection Regulations Sanitation Performance Standards. There are no similar noncompliance records on file. The establishments preoperational sanitation form did not document this noncompliance. This document serves as written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional regulatory or administrative action.
