Citation: At 1600,12 June 2012 EIAO [redacted] came into the inspection office and notified me, CSI [redacted] that water was leaking through the main holding cooler ceiling , dripping onto several beef quarters. I went to the holding cooler and confirmed that the ceiling was leaking thru half of the seams in the ceiling closest to the cutting room. I immediately notified [redacted] of the situation, and two of his personnel moved the carcasses out from the affected area and trimmed all affected product . I then reinspected the quarter carcasses and had the Est. personnel move them to the blast cooler. I sugested that Mr. [redacted] put a plastic shroud over the rest of the carcasses that were not in the affected area, and he said he would. At 0800 on 13 June 2012 I went into the main holding cooler to inspect the area and all product in the non-affected area, and saw no deficiencies, but there was no plastic shroud covering the remaining carcasses. US Retain Tags B41007175, B41007176, and B41007177 were placed on all rails affected by the leaking ceiling, and Mr. [redacted] was notified. All livers and tongues affected were disposed of.[newline]The Establishment has a written SOP procedure in place addressing SPS issues, to include [redacted]. The Raw SSOP report record indicates condensation was monitored and is acceptable. This is in non compliance with 9CFR 416.1, 416.2d, 416.4d, 416.13b and c.A review of past 3 months documented non-compliances did not reveal similar causes.
