Citation: 

 At 0600 hrs while performing PBIS task 06D01 the following deficiency was identified; Beaded droplets of condensation and ice was observed on the pipes in the hallway between the Box Cooler and the Sales Cooler. This hallway is frequently used by forklift drivers with combos of product and boxed product on the way to the loading dock doors. The area was taped off to stop any foot traffic and forklift traffic from passing thru the area. A USDA Reject/Retain tag # B38567983 was attached to the tape securing the area. Product was not present at the time. This finding represents non-compliance with 9CFR 416.2(d), which states "Ventilation adequate to control odor, vapor, and condensation to the extent necessary to prevent adulteration of product and the creation of insanitary conditions must be provided." This finding also represents non-compliance with 9CFR 416.4(d), which states, "Product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments."
