Address: 1095 Mt. Airy Rd, Stevens, PA 17578
Establishment No.: p09965

USDA Inspection Report: 2 Dec 2010

Code: 01C02
Violation: 416.13(b), 416.4(a), 416.4(b)

Citation: At approximately 0915 hours while performing a scheduled 01C02 procedure, I observed the following in the room used to store the cleaned edible and inedible containers: The floor was wet and slippery from oil from the pump located in the room. There was garbage on the floor consisting of used gloves, pieces of hoses, nuts, bolts, electrical box, sponge mop head, arm gator (a food contact surface), and a scrub pad. The walls had flaking paint and had patches of mold on various areas of the wall. A white frock and clear plastic apron were hanging on wall hooks and were in direct contact with the moldy wall. An inedible plastic shovel was also stored on one of these hooks and was in direct contact with a sleeve gator that was draped over a metal step. There was a rusty steel hanging on the hook as well. The fan grill was entirely covered in rust and this rust came off to the touch. There was a ceiling tile missing from the ceiling. There were 7 cleaned edible barrels stored upside down on a pallet. This pallet had a rubber mat over the top of it. This rubber mat was covered with white flakes of paint and chicken feathers. When the barrels were lifted there was flakes of paint on the surface of where the lips of the barrels had been, a food contact surface. I reviewed the SSOP and noted that operational sanitation had not yet been performed. Ms. [redacted] QC, was shown the non-compliances and Mr. [redacted] Plant Manager, was verbally notified of the non-compliances. Regulatory control of the edible barrels was not taken as Ms. [redacted] began immediate corrective actions. The establishment is not complying with 9CFR 416.13(b), 416.4(a), and 416.4 (b) .

Regulation:

416.13(b) Each official establishment shall conduct all other procedures in the Sanitation SOPís at the frequencies specified.

416.4(a) All food-contact surfaces, including food-contact surfaces of utensils and equipment, must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.

416.4(b) Non-food-contact surfaces of facilities, equipment, and utensils used in the operation of the establishment must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.
