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

USDA Inspection Report: 15 Aug 2011

Code: 06D02
Violation:  416.2(b)(2), 416.2(d)

Citation: At 0715 hours I observed beaded condensation on the frame of the doorway between the small duck slaughter area and the duck holding/staging area. This does not comply with Title 9 CFR 416.2(d). In the holding/staging area for the live ducks (small) the area was emanating a foul odor. Mr. was shown the above mentioned noncompliance and informed area was rejected US tag # B 17 234354. In the "small slaughter" live duck holding/staging area, I observed that the ceiling is constructed of wood which is porous material. Title 9 CFR 416.2(b)(2) states, "Walls, floors, and ceilings within establishments must be built of durable materials impervious to moisture and be cleaned and sanitized as necessary to prevent adulteration of product or the creation of insanitary conditions." The Ceiling is not impervious to moisture; Mr. was informed of the noncompliance.

Regulation:

416.2(b)(2) Walls, floors, and ceilings within establishments must be built of durable materials impervious to moisture and be cleaned and sanitized as necessary to prevent adulteration of product or the creation of insanitary conditions.

416.2(d) 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.
