Citation: At approximately 0700 hrs while performing a routine pre-operational inspection I found the following non-compliances.[newline]In the processing room I found 27 grey totes with meat and fat on the inside and outside of the totes (contact). U.S. Reject tag NO. B39879007 was applied to the totes. There were a 2 knives and a scabbard used for processing product that were in the processing area that had small pieces of meat stuck to them (contact). U.S. Reject tag NO. B39879009 was applied to the scabbard and knives. By the end of my pre-operational inspection, neither the totes nor the scabbard with knives were cleaned so both U.S. Reject tags have remained attached to the items.[newline]In the slaughter floor I found what appeared to be a fat residue on the hog dehairer (non-contact). U.S. Reject tag NO. B39879008 was applied to the dehairer. A slaughter floor employee immediately re-cleaned the equipment and U.S. Reject tag NO. B39879008 was removed.
