Putting Glass Walls on South Carolina Slaughterhouses So We Can See Behind Closed Doors from FAUN Friends Of Animals United
Brown Packing Co., Inc.

Address: 116 Willis St. Gaffney, SC 29340
Establishment No.: m1085

USDA Inspection Report: 28 Dec 2011

Code: 01C02
Violation: 416.4(d), 416.2(a)

Citation: FSIS [redacted] reported to me that while he was performing inspection duties at the FSIS final rail inspection station at 15:38h a fly landed on the thigh area of carcass #484. [redacted] was shown the non-compliance. [redacted] proceeded to kill the fly, the carcass chain was stopped and [redacted] trimmed the contaminated area of the carcass to [redacted] satisfaction upon re-inspection. The carcass chain was subsequently re-started. No preventive measures were offered at this time. As you are aware notification of a trend has been documented with regard to failure to eliminate flies from the kill-floor, and previous plant actions appear to be only ma rginally effective at this time given the limited fly population at this time of the year. This document serves as written notice that Establishment #M1085 failed to comply with the FSIS regulatory requirement(s) stated above.


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

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.
