Establishment No.: m4465
USDA Inspection Report: 21 Oct 2010
Violation: 416.1, 416.4(d)
Citation: This morning at approximately 0830 while returning from the Fabrication Department I noticed condensation on a pipe above the area where carcasses enter the carcass cooler from the Chad. I did not see any drops fall so I placed US Reject Tag 737484 at the entrance to the Chad to prevent carcasses from entering the area. I notified and of the deficiency. The overhead areas were 'moped down' to remove the condensation ant at 0843 I removed my Tag. You have 2 unanswered similar NR's for this same condition that were written on Oct. 5 and Oct. 12. Any actions taken to prevent a recurrence have been ineffective.
