Address: 328 South Wyoming St, Hazelton, PA 18201
Establishment No.: m20760

USDA Inspection Report: 1 Sep 2011

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.1, 416.2(d)

Citation: On September 01, 2011 at approximately 1500 hrs, while performing an ISP procedure code 06D01, I identified the following noncompliances: while I was in the cutting and processing room in the ground floor I observed condensation was dripping from the ceil approximately 2 meters to the right side of the main entrance of the cutting room almost between the 2 cooling units to the right side. I noticed there were closed product boxes underneath the condensation area. [redacted] the QC Manager was informed of the non compliance approximately at 1505 hours and I immediately told her to move the product boxes underneath the condensation area to another area. I made sure there was not product adulteration and I affixed a US Rejected/US Retained tag number B43736067 to the affected area of condensation. The establishment is not in compliance with the following regulations: 9 CFR 416.1, which states: "General rules. 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 416.2(d), which states: " Ventilation adequate to control odors, vapors, & condensation to the extent necessary to prevent adulteration of product & the creation of insanitary conditions must be provided."
