Establishment No.: m1085

USDA Inspection Report: 18 Nov 2011

Code: 01C02
Violation: 416.2(a)

Citation: At 15:06h while standing beneath the overhead tongue/head chain pan (in the area adjacent to the FSIS gut/viscera inspection station) while engaged in discussion with [redacted], I observed a fly in flight in that area of the kill-floor. [redacted] was notified of the non-compliance. The fly was in-flight and did not land, thus killing the fly was not a viable option.No product was involved in this incident. The fly was not killed and thus could not be eliminated from the kill-floor area at that time, thus the risk of future product contamination could not be eliminated.This document serves as written notification that Est. #M108S has failed to comply with the regulat ion(s) cited above. As you are aware the establishment has been notified of a trend with rega rd to fail ure to eliminate flies from the kill-floor, and plant corrective actions continue to be ineffective at this time.


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.
