Citation: At approximately 1230 hrs., I observed the following. In the evisceration room four flies are hovering around the equipment, tools and utensils etc. and in the adjacent shipping area. (No exposed product in these areas at this time). In the processing area, two or three flies are evident in the exposed product area. U.S. Reject tag No. B18871538 was applied. In the inedible room several flies were observed. In the second floor dry storage area two or three flies were observed. Mr. Douglas Corwin plant owner/manager, was immediately informed. On the right wall of the evisceration room (from the entrance to the establishment) just past the shipping area, the stainless steel panels along the archway of the freezer window/chute have visible black residuals of unknown origin on their exposed surfaces. Mr. Douglas Corwin / Mr. , plant managers were informed. This is in noncompliance with Title 9 CFR 416.2(b)(3) which requires walls, floors, windows, and other outside openings to be constructed and maintained to prevent the entrance of vermin, such as flies, rats and mice. Title 9 CFR 416.4(b) requires non-food-contact surfaces of facilities, equipment and utensils used in the operation of the establishment to be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.
