Putting Glass Walls on New York's Slaughterhouses So We Can See Behind Closed Doors
Crescent Duck Farm Inc., New York

Address: 10 Edgar Ave, Aquebogue, NY 11931
Establishment No.: 00824 P

USDA Inspection Report: 14 Jun 2011

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.2(a)

Citation: On June 14, 2011 at 14:40 while USDA personnel were in the Inspectors office a cockroach was observed crawling on the floor to the right of the window. Mr. was informed immediately. The Regulations in Section 416.2(a) state "The grounds about an establishment must be maintained to prevent conditions that could lead to unsanitary 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." The Regulations in Section 416.2(a) have not been met. This is a repetitive NR. Previous NR 0007 dated 02/03/2011. Past Similar NRs - Previous Ineffective Plant Actions: Cracks and any spots of harborage were sealed in that office. The office was thoroughly cleaned. Bait stations were place through the office. Crescent will closely monitor the situation for any activity. Pest control program was reviewed and updated on 02/03/2011. The further planned actions were ineffective in or were not implemented in a way that is preventing the noncompliance from re-occurring. Continued failure to meet regulatory requirements can lead to further enforcement actions.

Regulation:

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.
