Establishment No.: p1015
USDA Inspection Report: 30 May 2012
Citation: At approximately 0425 hours,05/30/2012, I was performing a routine operational sanitation procedure between the chicken and turkey chillers. I observed product residue (fat,meat) in 10 grey combo bins. This residue was from a previous days production on product contact surfaces. Residue was one half inch to one and a half inches, and included a blue plastic liner from previous days operations. There was no plant identification on the bins to withhold their use. The plants SSOP record did not have any notations to identify these units as rejected or otherwise restricted from use. I notified that the items were rejected and applied US Reject tag # B33527452.
416.4(a) All food-contact surfaces, including food-contact surfaces of utensils and equipment, must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.
