Putting Glass Walls on Delaware Slaughterhouses So We Can See Behind Closed Doors
Allen Harim Foods, LLC.

Address: 18752 Harbeson Road, Harbeson, DE 19951
Establishment No.: P935

USDA Inspection Report: 21 Mar 2012

Code: 01C02
Violation: 416.13(c), 416.4(d)

Citation: While performing operational sanitation in the salvage reprocessing area at 07:45 hours I observed piles of product including breasts, wings, legs, and thighs in the floor. The salvage totes were overflowing and the product was falling directly onto the floor and onto a drain cover. I also observed in this area that the cones for cutting up the chickens were full causing several whole chickens to fall onto the drain cover. I initiated regulatory control as per Title 9 CFR Section 500.2(a)(1) by retaining the affected product with US Retain tag # B34292918. I notified Ms. Shift Manager who was present and did observe the establishments failure to comply with the regulatory requirements of Title 9 CFR Section 416.13(c), 416.4(d), and 416.1. This is also a deviation from # 5 parts A and B of the establishments own Sanitation SOP's which deals with the handling of product at the salvage station. I observed as the affected product was condemned by the establishment and I relinquished regulatory control at 07:53 hours after sanitary conditions had been restored. This document serves as written notification to Mr. Plant Manager that failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional regulatory or administrative actions.


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

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