Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.1, 416.4(b)

Citation: At 0700 hrs on the 28th of September, while performing preoperational sanitation verification (01B02), I observed the following noncompliance: Stunning Area * rust on overhead I-beam; * accumulation of dust on steam pipe, hoist and exhaust fan guard over door to pens; * dirt on floor and wall in boiler room adjacent to the blood room. [redacted] slaughter supervisor, was advised of the aforementioned noncompliance. The plant's daily sanitation monitoring forms has no documentation reflecting the insanitary conditions. This is a failure of 9 CFR 416.1; and 416.4(b).
