Establishment No.: m21554

USDA Inspection Report: 21 Mar 2012

Code: 01D01
Violation: 416.1, 416.2(a), 416.2(b)(3)

Citation: At approx: 0830 hours while performing a SPS-06D01, verification inspection I observed the following NonCompliance. There is a hole in the siding near the unloading dock off the kill floor at the bottom of the overhead door jam on the right hand side. The approximate size was four inches by four inches. That would allow the entrance of vermin. I immediately told plant owner Mr. [redacted] about the hole, he told me to show him which I did. Mr. [redacted] told me he would fix it right away. There is a double door between the unloading dock and the kill floor, so no reject tag was issued at this time. There was no evidence of any rodent activity at this time. The above is in noncompliance with regulation 416.2(a) & 416.2(b)(3). Further I observed clutter on the walk way of the over head storage area above the RTE processing room. I was not able to inspect the area because I could not walk down the walk way there is no passage way. Also the Box room off the raw processing room has a cluttered walk way and inspection can not inspect the store room because there is no passageway. The above is in NonCompliance with Regulation 416.2(a). Mr. [redacted] told me he will have it straightened up to allow inspection of the areas mentioned. No reject tags issued at this time. Plant owner Mr. [redacted] was informed of the above noncompliances. Review of past NonCompliance did not show any with same cause in the past three months.

Regulation:

416.1 Each official establishment must be operated and maintained in a manner sufficient to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and to ensure that product is not adulterated.
