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

USDA Inspection Report: 27 May 2011

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.2(d)

Citation: At approximately 1607 hours, I was finishing USDA breaks on Line # [redacted] as I walked over to the sink, I noticed Multiple insulated pipes above Line # [redacted] (above the oil gland cutter to the opener) and the sink area with condensation on them. I looked around the department and observed no one that was wiping the pipes off with condensation on them. I immediately stop the line and informed [redacted] (Evis supervisor) of the noncompliance. While the line was down, I then observed that the new drip pan that was put under the pipe above the drop chute for Line # [redacted] only had one end attached to the pipe and the other end hanging down into the drop chute for Line # [redacted] I then informed [redacted] of this noncompliance. I started the line back up after maintenance adjusted the drop pan and the pipes above the line were wiped dry. At 1647 hours, I went to the QA office and asked the senior QA technician to bring up the establishment's facilities check on Plant View. At this time there had not been a facilities check performed.


416.2(d) Ventilation. Ventilation adequate to control odors, vapors, and condensation to the extent necessary to prevent adulteration of product and the creation of insanitary conditions must be provided.
