Putting Glass Walls on Rhode Island Slaughterhouses So We Can See Behind Closed Doors
Rhode Island Beef And Veal

Address: 60 Armento St, Johnston, RI 02919
Establishment No.: m53

USDA Inspection Report: 25 Apr 2011

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.2(b)(2)

Citation: While performing an 06D01 inspection at approximately 11:00, the following discrepancies were observed throughout this establishment: Slaughter area: (1) The calking around the entire slaughter floor, where the floor meets the walls is cracking and pulling away from the intended area. (2) Where the ceiling and walls meet in the carcass wash down area are not sealed. (3) The round white housing that holds the cable for the split saw has peeling and flaking paint. Breakdown Cooler: (1) Upon entering this cooler, the right wall has holes in it close to the floor. Carcass Storage Cooler: There are multiple holes in the walls in this cooler that are in need of repair. 9 CFR 416.2 (b) states: walls, floors, and ceilings within establishments must be built of durable materials impervious to moisture and be cleaned and sanitized as necessary to prevent adulteration of product or the creation of insanitary conditions. Upon review of this company's sanitation documents prepared for the day, these areas that are outlined above were marked as acceptable, or not in need of repair. I informed Mr. of these non-compliances verbally, visually, and also informed him that a Noncompliance Report would be generated to reflect these findings. These areas of concern will also be discussed in the upcoming weekly meeting. No regulatory control action other than this Noncompliance Record was taken, because no direct product contamination was observed. No similar Noncompliance Records pertaining to these particular subjects were noted. Management of establishment 5300, please be reminded that this is a Federally Inspected Establishment and failure to comply with regulatory requirements as outlined in accordance with 9 CFR 500.4 could result in additional regulatory or administrative action being taken by the U.S.D.A.

Regulation:

416.2(b)(2) Walls, floors, and ceilings within establishments must be built of durable materials impervious to moisture and be cleaned and sanitized as necessary to prevent adulteration of product or the creation of insanitary conditions.
