Address: 800 Manning Av, McKeesport, PA 15132
Establishment No.: m09457

USDA Inspection Report: 30 May 2012

Code: 01D01
Violation: 314.3, 416.1, 416.2(a)

Citation: At approximately 0900 hours while performing the review and observation component of the Sanitation Performance Standards I observed the following deficiencies in the unrefrigerated back holding cooler that is being used for equipment and inedible storage. There is an accumulation of boxes and pieces of old equipment stored directly on the floor. There are several large cooling units, band saws, conveyors, and various other pieces of equipment stored in very close proximity to the perimeter walls that it makes it impossible to perform a thorough pest inspection of the area. There are also several inedible barrels filled from the previous days production without any denaturant applied. A check of the daily SSOP records found that these deficiencies were not documented. This is a violation of FSIS regulations 314.3,416.1, and 416.2(a). No tag applied. No product directly affected. I notified Mr. [redacted] orally and in writing with this NR of the noncompliance.


314.3(a) Carcasses, parts of carcasses, and other products condemned at an official establishment which has no facilities for tanking shall, except as provided in paragraph (b) of this section or elsewhere in this part, be destroyed in the presence of an inspector by incineration, or denatured with crude carbolic acid, or cresylic disinfectant, or a formula consisting of one part FD&C No. 3 green coloring, 40 parts water, 40 parts liquid detergent, and 40 parts oil of citronella or any other proprietary material approved by the Administrator in specific cases. When such product is to be denatured, it shall be freely slashed before the denaturing agent is applied, except that, in the case of dead animals that have not been dressed, the denaturant may be applied by injection. The denaturant must be deposited in all portions of the carcass or product to the extent necessary to preclude its use for food purposes.

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(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.
