Putting Glass Walls on New York's Slaughterhouses So We Can See Behind Closed Doors
Hudson Valley Foie Gras

Address: 80 Brooks Rd, Ferndale, NY 12734
Establishment No.: p17966

USDA Inspection Report: 13 Jan 2011

Code: 06D01
Violation:  416.2(c)

Citation: At 1130 this morning FSIS Inspector observed that empty constructed corrugated product containers are being stored in the new cooler/freezer unit that is under construction off the corrugated storage warehouse. Upon entering the unit it was observed that nothing could be observed because there are no lights working in the unit. Inspection understands that the unit is under construction but Inspection must ensure that sanitary conditions are maintained per 416.2(c) with adequate lighting. The concern is with the corrugated product containers that will contain product eventually. No finished/raw product is involved. Plant Manager notified at 1200 hours on this date.

Regulation:

416.2(c) Lighting of good quality and sufficient intensity to ensure that sanitary conditions are maintained and that product is not adulterated must be provided in areas where food is processed, handled, stored, or examined; where equipment and utensils are cleaned; and in hand-washing areas, dressing and locker rooms, and toilets.
