Establishment No.: p31727

USDA Inspection Report: 24 Oct 2011

Code: 01D01
Violation: 416.1, 416.2(e)(3), 416.2(h)(1)

Citation: On October 24, 2011, at approximately 07:55 hours, while performing an unscheduled Sanitation Performance Standards (SPS) verification inspection procedure of the employee restroom facilities located on the establishment’s second floor between the maintenance and QC/HACCP offices, I observed that one (1) of the two (2) employee toilet stalls at this location continues to be made unavailable for use due to mechanical problems. Since approximately 15:00 hours, yesterday, 10/23/2011, one (1) toilet at this location is available for use by approximately one hundred ten (110) employees, approximately one-third (1/3) of which are women. In the firm's evisceration department, I noted that the drain of a hand washing sink located near the automated lung gun machine is not directly connected with plumbing to convey away waste water, which instead flows onto the concrete flooring beneath and into a foot traffic zone. I rejected the hand washing sink by affixing the Food Safety and Inspection Service form 6502-1 #B40157510.

No edible product was seen to have been involved at the time of my observations.

These observations constitute failures 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(e)(3), 2(h)(1), and 4(d). The establishment’s QC/HACCP director, Mr. [redacted] was informed of the noncompliances upon receipt of this document.

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 maintain the integrity of plumbing at a hand washing sink allowing waste water to flow into a foot traffic zone and make a sufficient number of toilet facilities available for use by its employees.

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(e)(3) Plumbing. Plumbing systems must be installed and maintained to: Prevent adulteration of product, water supplies, equipment, and utensils and prevent the creation of insanitary conditions throughout the establishment;

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.
