Tyson Foods

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

USDA Inspection Report: 11 Apr 2012

Code: 01D01
Violation: 416.1

Citation: After finishing my Finished Product Standard tests, I was walking through the Evis department on the way to my next task. When I observed a stainless steel product tank sitting at the end of Line # [redacted] by the drop chute to the chiller. Upon further investigation I observed a hose hanging from a drip pan above the drop chute and drops of water from the drip pan dripping into the tank. The tank was to be used in the rotation of tanks for the Line # [redacted] reprocessed carcasses. I immediately applied a USDA rejected tag # B36 279432 to the tank. I then immediately informed [redacted] (Evis supervisor) of the noncompliance.

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.
