USDA Inspection Report: 21 Jul 2011

Violation:  416.4(b)

Citation: While performing a scheduled 01B02 (SSOP) in the processing area at approx 0710 on the 21st of July, 2011 CSI & I noticed that there were 4 meat/fat particles approx 1/4" in size from the previous days production on the body of a cart that is used for transferring boxed product into the freezer. I noticed that the establishment did not mark this down on the pre-operational checklist that was completed and initialed. This is a violation of 9CFR 416.4(B). was verbally notified of the situation, and a regulatory control action was taken by placing a U.S. REJECTED TAG number 766788 on the cart. said that it would be taken care of before the use of the cart. Before completion of writing the NR Mr. cleaned the cart and the tag was removed. After referencing previous non-compliance I noticed that this was not able to be linked to any previous non-compliance


416.4(b) Non-food-contact surfaces of facilities, equipment, and utensils used in the operation of the establishment must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.
