Crescent Duck Farm Inc.,
Address: 10 Edgar Ave, Aquebogue, NY 11931
Establishment No.: 00824 P
USDA Inspection Report: 20 Jun 2011
Citation: On June 20, 2011 at 0650 after the Establishment had completed pre-operational sanitation inspection and prior to the start of operation, I observed weight scale station. The surface of the weight scale where the boxes pass through was not properly cleaned with old and dry-out material on it. Also the table holding the scale has some material/dirt built on it. A regulatory control action is initiated and an U.S. Reject Tag was applied (#B 36105854) to restrict the use of the weight scale until corrective action could be performed. Mr. was informed immediately. The Regulation in Section 416.4(b) state "Non-food contact surfaces of facilities, equipment and utensils used in the operation of the establishment must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of unsanitary conditions and the adulteration of product." The Regulation in Section 416.4(b) has not been met.
