Establishment No.: p1015
USDA Inspection Report: 14 Jun 2012
Citation: At 0510 today while walking through the raw side of the cook room I observed the following noncompliance; prior to the start of production:A small silver dump tank that held several stainless steel pipes/tubes, clamps, etc.; contained brownish colored water in the bottom of the tank, which partially covered the equipment. When inspecting individual units a dark brown residue covered the insides and ends of three pipes/tubes. This equipment is part of the RT-7 and units. I informed ( Supervisor) and applied USDA tag # B37853343. Parts were cleaned, sanitized, and released at 0550. This is a violation of 9CFR 416.4 (a) and your SSOP plan. A similar occurence was documented on 05/30/12; as noted above in block 6a, the proposed further action were not properly applied or ineffective as demostrated by todays noncompliance.
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.
