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

USDA Inspection Report: 22 Feb 2012

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

Citation: On February 22, 2012 at approximately 1330 hours, I saw a small cockroach about 1.5 cm. length in the interior of the USDA room door in the 2nd. Floor. I kept the cockroach & showed it to [redacted] the establishment QC personnel. You are in violation of 9 CFR 416.1, which states " 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 also 416.2(a), which states " Establishments must have in place a pest management program to prevent the harborage and breeding of pests on the grounds and within establishment facilities. Pest control substances used must be safe and effective under the conditions of use and not be applied or stored in a manner that will result in the adulteration of product or the creation of insanitary conditions". This noncompliance is linked to a previous non compliance of a similar cause, record # YKM 0508010205N, dated 01/05/2012. Previous preventive measures were ineffective or were improperly implemented to prevent recurrence.

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.

416.2(a) Grounds and pest control. The grounds about an establishment must be maintained to prevent conditions that could lead to insanitary conditions, adulteration of product, or interfere with inspection by FSIS program employees. Establishments must have in place a pest management program to prevent the harborage and breeding of pests on the grounds and within establishment facilities. Pest control substances used must be safe and effective under the conditions of use and not be applied or stored in a manner that will result in the adulteration of product or the creation of insanitary conditions.
