Violation: 416.2(d), 416.4(d), 416.13(c)

Citation: At approximately 2145 hours, while performing General Labeling Task in the 2nd processing area, I observed heavily beaded condensation on several white galvanized overhead pipe that runs directly over product contact surfaces of Giblet area, Cut up breast area ( Dapec 1 & 2), leg and back processing area as well as small tray pack area. The condensation was about 7 to 15 feet long and were dripping directly on the Conveyor belts. A regulatory control action was taken specially on tray pack line by stoping the line. I immediately notified Mr. the 2nd Shift plant manager, about the Establishment's failure to meet the requirements of 9 CFR 416.13(c), 416.4(d), & 416.2(d). The contaminated Conveyor belts were cleaned and sanitized immediately. Sanitary conditions were also restored by dabbing the condensated pipe. Ms. Plant Manager, is being notified through this noncompliance record of the plant's failure to meet the regulatory requirements. This document serves as a written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional regulatory and/or administrative action described in 9 CFR 500.
