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

USDA Inspection Report: 4 Jan 2011

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.1, 416.2(e)(4)

Citation: At approximately 1600 hours, I observed the following noncompliance in the evisceration department. On evisceration line # [redacted] in the area of the brush cabinets, the waste water trough under the line was overflowing onto the floor between line # [redacted] and the east wall of the evisceration department. The closest trough drain to this area was clogged with organic residue and was not draining the trough. I observed 2 to 3 inches of standing water containing waste material covering the floor in the walkway next to line # [redacted] Personnel walking through this area were spreading contamination around the department on the soles of their shoes. This constitutes an insanitary condition and is in violation of 9CFR 416.2(e)(4) which states, "Plumbing systems must be installed and maintained to provide adequate floor drainage in all areas where floors are subject to flooding-type cleaning or where normal operations release or discharge water or other liquid waste on the floor." Evisceration Supervisor [redacted] was notified at 1604 hours of the noncompliance and that a noncompliance report would be issued. At 1445 hours, I had first notified [redacted] that the trough was not draining adequately in this area. 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(e)(4) Provide adequate floor drainage in all areas where floors are subject to flooding-type cleaning or where normal operations release or discharge water or other liquid waste on the floor
