Address: 9 Mandeville Ave, Pequannock NJ 07440
Establishment No.: 18736
USDA Inspection Report: 2 October 2007
Violation of: 416.2(a), 416.2(h)(1), 416.2(h)(2)
On Tuesday, October 2, 2007, while performing an unscheduled 06D01 procedure, the following non-compliance was observed: The plumbing fixtures in the lavatory connected to the USDA office were observed in a filthy condition. There was also no paper towels available for use in this bathroom. In the hallway adjacent to the USDA office was observed two large freezers which had various household trash under and behind them. This unsanitary condition created a possibility of attracting and harboring various pests and insects. At the time of this observance, no evidence of pests was noticed. In the second floor storage area accessed from the stairs outside the USDA office was observed a cluttered mess of tools and equipment. The messy condition hampered the ability to thoroughly inspect the grounds for any evidence of rodents. The areas which were accessible were inspected and no evidence of rodent or pests were observed. This report serves as written notification of failure to meet the requirements set forth in 9CFR 416.2(a), and 416.2(h)(1-2).
416.2(a) 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.
416.2(h)(1) Dressing rooms, toilet rooms, and urinals must be sufficient in number, ample in size, conveniently located, and maintained in a sanitary condition and in good repair at all times to ensure cleanliness of all persons handling any product. They must be separate from the rooms and compartments in which products are processed, stored, or handled.
416.2(h)(2) Lavatories with running hot and cold water, soap, and towels, must be placed in or near toilet and urinal rooms and at such other places in the establishment as necessary to ensure cleanliness of all persons handling any product.
