Address: 1034 Industrial Blvd, Bradenville, PA 15620
Establishment No.: m09958
USDA Inspection Report: 17 Feb 2012
Violation: 416.2(b)(1), 416.4(b)
Citation: At 0725 hours while performing the Sanitary Performance Standards procedure after the establishment's pre-operational procedures were complete the following noncompliance was observed. Fat and meat particles from the previous production day were observed on the floor throughout the processing area. Also fat and meat particles were observed on the legs of the stainless tables used for portioning product. The fat and meat particles were especially heavy in the area beneath the scale area which is used for a storage area for totes or lugs. Mr. [redacted] and Mr. [redacted] were immediately notified of this noncompliance. The establishment's pre-operational checklist noted several areas that were not acceptable but, did not note the floor area or the legs of the tables. A wooden pallet was located in this area beneath the scales and was removed by management at this time and replaced with a plastic pallet which was cleaned and sanitized then placed in position beneath the scales. 9 CFR 416.4(b) states "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. This noncompliance was observed before the start of operations therefore no control action was taken. These areas were cleaned and sanitized before production began.
416.2(b)(1) Construction. Establishment buildings, including their structures, rooms, and compartments must be of sound construction, be kept in good repair, and be of sufficient size to allow for processing, handling, and storage of product in a manner that does not result in product adulteration or the creation of insanitary conditions.
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.
