Establishment No.: m09672

USDA Inspection Report: 4 Oct 2010

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

Citation: At approximately 0710 hours, while performing a scheduled preoperational sanitation inspection on the slaughter floor, I observed the following Sanitation Performance Standards noncompliance: 1. The Brisket Saw had oil on the top of the motor housing and the clasp on the overhead support cable had pieces of fat and residue. 2. The Gutting Stand had fat residue on the underside of the hand rail. 3. The underside of the rail at the Final Wash Stand had an accumulation of fat and meat residue from the previous days operation. All areas are non product contact. The slaughter foreman was notified and immediate corrective actions were taken to clean and sanitize the affected areas. There was no further regulatory action taken. Mr. [redacted] Slaughter Foreman was verbally notified of the compliance and the failure to comply with sections 416.1 and 416.4(b) of the Meat Inspection Regulations Sanitation Performance Standards. The establishments sanitation form dated 10/4/2010 did not document this noncompliance. There are no similar noncompliance records on file. This document serves as written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional regulatory or administrative action.


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.
