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: 29 Jun 2011

Code: 01B02
Violation: 416.13(a), 416.4(a)

Citation: On June 29, 2011 at 0640 after the establishment's pre-operational inspection and before the start of operations, I performed procedure 01B02. I observed the following noncompliance: a dead house fly was found on the surface of giblet flume by the giblet harvest table. No product was involved. A regulatory control action was initiated and an U.S. Reject Tag was applied (# B 24887885) to restrict use of the giblet flume until corrective action could be performed. Mr. was informed immediately. The giblet flume was then properly cleaned to restore sanitary conditions. The Regulation in Section 416.13 (a) state "Each official establishment shall conduct the pre-operational procedures in the Sanitation SOP's before the start of operations." The Regulation in Section 416.4 (a) state "All food-contact surfaces, including food-contact surfaces of utensils and equipment, must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of unsanitary conditions and the adulteration of product." The Regulations in Section 416.13 (a) and 416.4 (a) have not been met.

Regulation:

416.13(a) Each official establishment shall conduct the pre-operational procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s before the start of operations.

416.4(a) All food-contact surfaces, including food-contact surfaces of utensils and equipment, must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.
