USDA Inspection Report: 20 Sep 2010

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.2(a), 416.4(c)

Citation: September 20, 2010 16:50 hours While performing a Homeland Security inspection procedure of the facility's water systems, Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) Inspector-In-Charge, [redacted] observed a small, clear, unlabeled plastic bag containing approximately eight ounces of reddish granules on the floor of the maintenance room. Inspector [redacted] then noticed an open container of [redacted] Granular Fly Bait being used as a bait station on top on one of the circuit breakers and containing the same reddish granular fly bait and approximately 150 dead common house flies. After reading the directions for use panel, which states that this agent is not approved for use inside food processing establishments, Inspector [redacted] rejected the container and bag by applying FSIS Form 6502-1 #B39133051. As this discovery was made in the maintenance room, no edible product was involved at the time. Upon review of the establishment's Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) file, Inspector [redacted] found no MSDS for [redacted] Granular Fly Bait. This is a failure to comply with the United States Code of Federal Regulations, Title 9, Chapter III, Sections 416.2(a) and 416.4(c). Mr. [redacted] was notified of the noncompliances verbally promptly. Federal law requires that establishments maintain MSDSs, Letters Of Guarantee, and/or Certificates Of Analysis, on file for review by the FSIS upon request to assure that chemicals and direct food contact surfaces, such as plastic bags, are being used on the official premises for the applications intended by their manufacturers to prevent the adulteration of product. MSDSs are also invaluable for the medical information they provide in the event of accidental poisoning, ignition, or spillage. This document serves as written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirement may result in additional regulatory and/or administrative action(s).


416.2(a) Grounds and pest control. The grounds about an establishment must be maintained to prevent conditions that could lead to insanitary conditions, adulteration of product, or interfere with inspection by FSIS program employees. Establishments must have in place a pest management program to prevent the harborage and breeding of pests on the grounds and within establishment facilities. Pest control substances used must be safe and effective under the conditions of use and not be applied or stored in a manner that will result in the adulteration of product or the creation of insanitary conditions.

416.4(c) Cleaning compounds, sanitizing agents, processing aids, and other chemicals used by an establishment must be safe and effective under the conditions of use. Such chemicals must be used, handled, and stored in a manner that will not adulterate product or create insanitary conditions. Documentation substantiating the safety of a chemicalís use in a food processing environment must be available to FSIS inspec
