Address: 403 South Custer Ave, New Holland, PA 17557
Establishment No.: p01325

USDA Inspection Report: 30 Sep 2010

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.1, 416.2(b)(2)

Citation: At approximately 1445 hours, while in the Offal Room beside the Evisceration Area, I observed the following insanitary conditions: the humidity in the room was extremely high with generalized condensation present on the room's structures. High humidity can facilitate mold formation, and a thick layer of black residue with the appearance of mold was widely distributed over the walls of the room. I wiped a towel on the wall and the black moldy residue came off onto the towel. The level of mold development present indicated that the walls had not be cleaned recently. The moldy residue is immediately adjacent to the Evisceration Production Area separated only by a door. GPM [redacted] was notified and shown the insanitary conditions. The plant is not in compliance with 9CFR416.2(b)(2) which requires that walls, floors, and ceilings within establishments must be cleaned and sanitized as necessary to prevent adulteration of product or the creation of insanitary conditions. This document serves as written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirements may result in additional regulatory or administrative action.

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(b)(2) Walls, floors, and ceilings within establishments must be built of durable materials impervious to moisture and be cleaned and sanitized as necessary to prevent adulteration of product or the creation of insanitary conditions.
