Citation: There is a gap at the bottom of the shipping door. The gap spans about 1 foot wide by 1 inch high at the center, and about 4 inches long by 1 inch wide at the side of the door. This door leads directly to the kill floor area from the outside of the building. This topic has been discussed at weekly meetings dated 9/8, and 9/28. A repair date of 10/04/11 was purposed by Mr. Barillaro, today is 10/5. Mr. Barillaro was notified of this non compliance with CRF 416.2b(3) Walls, floors, ceilings, doors, windows, and other outside openings must be constructed and maintained to prevent the entrance of vermin, such as flies, rats, and mice. There has been no evidence of vermin activity. On 10/5 at approximately 0930 hours I observed condensation droplets to numerous to count at the top of the frame of the large holding cooler. A plant employee was attempting to pass a beef side through the door way, before he could do so I informed him of the non-compliance, and immediate corrective action was taken. No product was affected. The issue of condensation has been discussed at the weekly meeting dated 9/28/2011. Mr Barillaro was notified of this non compliance with CFR 416.2d(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.No retain tags were applied as no product was affected.
