USDA Inspection Report: 28 Oct 2010
Violation: 416.13(b), 416.13(c), 416.2(a), 416.13(a)
Citation: On October 28, 2010 at 0850 after the plant had finished pre-operational sanitation inspection and prior to the start of operations I observed the stuffer on the cutting table. There was an old white product residue on the inside (product contact surface) covering about two thirds of the equipment. A regulatory control action was initiated to restrict use of the stuffer until corrective action could be performed (Tag # B 11 303142). Mr. was informed immediately. The Regulations in Section 416.13(a) state " Each official establishment shall conduct the pre-operational procedures in the Sanitation SOP's before the start of operations." The Regulations in Section 416.13(a) have not been met.
416.13(b) Each official establishment shall conduct all other procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s at the frequencies specified.
416.13(c) Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s.
416.2(a) Grounds and pest control. The grounds about an establishment must be maintained to prevent conditions that could lead to insanitary conditions, adulteration of product, or interfere with inspection by FSIS program employees. Establishments must have in place a pest management program to prevent the harborage and breeding of pests on the grounds and within establishment facilities. Pest control substances used must be safe and effective under the conditions of use and not be applied or stored in a manner that will result in the adulteration of product or the creation of insanitary conditions.
416.13(a) Each official establishment shall conduct the pre-operational procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s before the start of operations.
