Putting Glass Walls on Delaware Slaughterhouses So We Can See Behind Closed Doors
Perdue Farms, Delaware

Address: 20621 Savannah Rd, Georgetown, DE 19947
Establishment No.: P2178

USDA Inspection Report: 24 Jan 2012

Code: 01B02
Violation: 416.13(c)

Citation: At approximately 0454 hrs while performing pre-op sanitation in the chiller/grading dept. I observed the following noncompliance. The drip conveyor and metal pan had several pieces of fat and meat on them which are food contact surfaces. I notified Mr. /sanitation shift leader, the aforementioned conditions. I initiated regulatory control actions by rejecting the conveyor and applying a US Reject tag #B34336453. I observed as management implemented corrective actions by scrubbing with a soap pad, water rinse, and sanitized the conveyor and pan. After sanitary conditions were restored I reinspected the conveyor and pan, found them acceptable, and removed the tag at 0606 hrs. The establishment failed to meet regulatory requirements 416.13(c), 416.4, and 416.1 which states: each official establishment must be operated and maintained in a manner sufficient to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and to ensure that product is not adulterated.

Regulation:

416.13(c) Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s.
