Crescent Duck Farm Inc.,
Address: 10 Edgar Ave, Aquebogue, NY 11931
Establishment No.: 00824 P
USDA Inspection Report: 14 Jun 2011
Violation: 416.13(b), 416.4(d)
Citation: On June 14, 2011 at 1240 while the employees were packing the packaged ducks in boxes an employee got behind and dropped four packaged ducks on the floor, he then kicked them under the packing bins so that someone else would pick them up and kept working. A regulatory control action was initiated to stop the packing line (Tag # B 39918066) until corrective action could be performed. Mr. was informed immediately. Mr. was called and the situation was explained to him. Your SSOP #16 states " The Regulations in 416.13(b) states " Each official establishment shall conduct all other procedures in the Sanitation SOP's at the frequencies specified." The Regulations in Section 416.4(d) states "Product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, storage, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments." This is a repetitive noncompliance Past Similar NRs - Previous Ineffective Plant Actions: Employee retrained to insure product flowing properly and not allow any packaged product to stay on the floor for non immediate duration. NR: 15-2011 dated 4/18/2011 The further planned actions were ineffective in or were not implemented in a way that is preventing the noncompliance from reoccurring. Continued failure to meet regulatory requirements can lead to further enforcement actions.
