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

USDA Inspection Report: 16 Aug 2011

Code: 06D01
Violation:  416.1, 416.2(b)(2), 416.2(b)(3)

Citation: At approximately 0710 hours the following was observed in the dry storage (packing material) area: The area was littered and unclean with debris (e.g. plastic, garbage, wood from pallets). Area was rejected from use, US Tag # B 17 234354. In the packing material storage area, I observed a storage freezer that is constructed of wood (the outside of the cooler) 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 freezer cooler is not impervious to moisture; Mr. was informed 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.

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(b)(3) Walls, floors, ceilings, doors, windows, and other outside openings must be constructed and maintained to prevent the entrance of vermin, such as flies, rats, and mice.
