Putting Glass Walls on Connecticut Slaughterhouses So We Can
See Behind Closed Doors
Address: 785 Middle St, Bristol, CT, 06010
Establishment No.: M5998
USDA Inspection Report: 15 Feb 2012
Citation: The Dry Storage room has cob webs on the ceiling and all the corners, unused miscellaneous items, equipment and boxes are cluttered throughout the room making inspection of the room problematic and could be a possible vermin harborage area. This has been a topic of discussion at the weekly meetings dated 1/19, 2/2, and 2/8/2012. This is a violation of 9CFR Part 416.4(a). U.S. Rejected Tag # B3067750 was applied to the only entry door of the room as a Regulatory Control Action until sanitary conditions could be restored.
Regulation: 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.
