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: 2 May 2012

Code: 01D01
Violation: 416.1, 416.2(d)

Citation: On 5/2/2012 at 10:45am While inspecting the holding cooler I observed the following. Large drops of condensate forming  along the bottom tray of the evaporator unit located closest to the front of the facility. The fans were blowing condensate in the direction of hanging beef carcasses. No product was affected and no regulatory control action was taken. The plant took immediate action and moved all carcasses closest to the evaporator to an outside rail away from the unit removing any threat of product contact.


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(d) Ventilation adequate to control odors, vapors, and condensation to the extent necessary to prevent adulteration of product and the creation of insanitary conditions must be provided.
