USDA Inspection Report: 28 Sep 2010

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.2(b)(3)

Citation: At 1100 hours on this date while doing a walk through in the cry-o-vac packaging room Inspector noticed two flies on the top cover of the cry-o-vac machine. Raw product is packaged in this room during operating hours but at the time of the walk through the packing room employees were on lunch. The cover of the cry-o-vac machine was in the down position and no product contact surfaces of the packing equipment was observed. Although there was no raw product in the area at the time, other surfaces such as scale plates, packing tables, trimming surfaces are in danger of direct contamination from the flies in this room. Also noted on this non compliance in code 06D01 was that the right side of the double swinging doors to the packing room is difficult to open easily and tends to stick in an opening position sometimes leaving a gap of approximately one inch between doors. This could be a possible entrance area for flies being that the packing room doors are in the vicinity of the hallway leading to the outside premises. Parts of 416.2(b)(3) are not being met which states that "walls, floors,ceilings,doors, windows and other outside openings must be maintained to prevent the entrance of vermin such as flies, rats, mice etc." Supervisor [redacted] was notified of this non compliance and stated to me the flies would be eliminated and equipment and product contact surfaces sanitized prior to start up after lunch. This notice serves as written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional administrative regulatory action.


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.
