Cabin Hollow Butcher Shop

Address: 156 Old Cabin Hollow Rd, Dillsburg, PA 17019
Establishment No.: m09819

USDA Inspection Report: 28 Dec 2011

Code: 01D01
Violation: 416.1, 416.3(a), 416.4(d)

Citation: On December 28th 2011 at 01000 while walking through the finished product cooler that leads from the boning room, I observed the following non-compliance:
The large metal shelving rack that is used store plastic lugs had several pieces of what appeared to be dried fat and meat hanging from the bottom of two of the shelves. There were two empty plastic lugs on the shelf below two of the meat and fat pieces as well as an uncovered, not labeled exposed lug with boneless beef in close proximity to another piece of hanging dried material. This exposed lug was a failure to meet 9 CFR 416.4(d). "Product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, storage, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments". Overall, the entire shelving rack was exhibiting signs that it had not been cleaned recently and as such could potentially lead to product adulteration. This is a failure to meet the requirements of 9 CFR 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" and 9 CFR 416.3(a) "Equipment and utensils used for processing or otherwise handling edible product or ingredients must be of such material and construction to facilitate thorough cleaning and to ensure that their use will not cause the adulteration of product during processing, handling, or storage. Equipment and utensils must be maintained in sanitary condition so as not to adulterate product." I notified Sanitation Manager Mr. [redacted] of this situation at which time he covered the exposed product and removed the large pieces of dried meat and fat.

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.

416.3(a) Equipment and utensils used for processing or otherwise handling edible product or ingredients must be of such material and construction to facilitate thorough cleaning and to ensure that their use will not cause the adulteration of product during processing, handling, or storage. Equipment and utensils must be maintained in sanitary condition so as not to adulterate product.

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