Establishment No.: m8547

USDA Inspection Report: 23 Dec 2010

Code: 01C02
Violation:  416.13(c), 416.2(d), 416.4(d)

Citation: On 12/23/10 at approximately 1400 hours the following noncompliance was observed. Beaded condensation in multiple spots on the rails and ceiling of the hot cooler. I notified Mr. of my findings and he proceeded to wipe down the condensation as I pointed it out. No product was effected at this time, although an insanitary condition exists that could lead to product contamination or adulteration. This is a noncompliance of 416.13 (c), 416.2 (d), 416.4 (d) and the plants own SSOP plan. This document serves as a written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in further regulatory action. As always you have the right to appeal. Past Similar NRs - Previous Ineffective Plant Actions: The futher planned action of having one of the boning room employees monitor the beams for water build up throughout the day was either not implemented or was ineffective in preventing recurrence of condensation in the hot cooler. NR: 23-2010 dated 10/19/2010


416.13(c) Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s.

416.2(d) Ventilation. Ventilation adequate to control odors, vapors, and condensation to the extent necessary to prevent adulteration of product and the creation of insanitary conditions must be provided.

416.4(d) Product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, storage, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments.
