USDA Inspection Report: 3 Jan 2011

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.2(a), 416.4(b), 416.4(d)

Citation: On 1-3-11 at approximately 0845 hours while performing her online inspection duties, Inspector [redacted] observed a cockroach floating in the sterilizer at the inspection station on the slaughter floor. I went to the inspection station and concurred it was a cockroach. The presence of vermin in an establishment is a violation of 9 CFR 416.2, which states, "Walls, floors, ceilings, doors, windows, and other outside openings must be constructed and maintained to prevent entrance of vermin, such as flies, rats, and mice." Mr. [redacted] Jr. was notified of this noncompliance.


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(b) Non-food-contact surfaces of facilities, equipment, and utensils used in the operation of the establishment must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.

416.4(d) Product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, storage, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments.
