USDA Inspection Report: 17 Oct 2011

Code: 01D01
Violation: 416.1, 416.2(h)(1), 416.5(a)

Citation: On October 17, 2011, at approximately 13:05 hours while performing an unscheduled facilities and equipment sanitation inspection procedure of the employee restroom facilities located on the establishment’s second floor between the maintenance and QC/HACCP offices, I observed soiled toilet paper residing on the floor beside the two toilets. Toilet stall #1 contained a quantity of used toilet paper sufficient to form a mound measuring approximately sixteen (16) inches long, eight (8) inches high, and six (6) inches wide along the left-hand side of the toilet. The flooring to the right of the toilet in stall #2 was similarly contaminated with approximately one-quarter (1/4) the quantity of soiled toilet paper. I rejected toilet stalls #1 and #2 by affixing the Food Safety and Inspection Service Forms 6502-1 #B40157504 and #B40157503, respectively. No edible product was seen to have been involved at the time of my observations. This constitutes a failure to comply with the United States Code of Federal Regulations, Title 9, Chapter III, Animals and Animal Products, Subchapter E, Regulatory Requirements under the Federal Poultry Products Inspection Act, Part 416, Sanitation, Sections 1, 2(h)(1), and 5(a). The establishment’s QC/HACCP director, Mr. [redacted] was informed of the noncompliances immediately by telephone. Federally-inspected food production establishments are required to fulfill the expectations of all applicable requirements of the United States Code of Federal Regulations and Food Safety and Inspection Service. In this instance, management has failed to adequately train its staff to deposit toilet paper directly into the toilet after use. This document serves as written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements may result in additional regulatory and/or administrative action(s).


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(h)(1) Dressing rooms, lavatories, and toilets. Dressing rooms, toilet rooms, and urinals must be sufficient in number, ample in size, conveniently located, and maintained in a sanitary condition and in good repair at all times to ensure cleanliness of all persons handling any product. They must be separate from the rooms and compartments in which products are processed, stored, or handled.

416.5(a) Cleanliness. All persons working in contact with product, food-contact surfaces, and product-packaging materials must adhere to hygienic practices while on duty to prevent adulteration of product and the creation of insanitary conditions.
