USDA Inspection Report: 2 Dec 2011

Code: 01D01
Violation: 416.1, 416.2(b)(1), 416.2(b)(2)

Citation: On 12/02/2011 while conducting my tour of the facilities I noticed the following non-compliances in the establishment. 1) At approximately 1230hrs while examining the ladies lounge it was observed that the two outer screens in the windows were filled with dirt and old webs. Along the wall, which runs below the window, approximately 10 feet across and 4 feet high, were covered with black markings that looked like dirt and mold. These are in violation of regulations: 9CFR 416.1 which states: “Each official establishment must be operated and maintained in a manner sufficient to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and to ensure that product is not adulterated.” Also 9CFR 416.2(b)(2) which states” Walls, floors, and ceilings within establishments must be built of durable materials impervious to moisture and be cleaned and sanitized as necessary to prevent adulteration of product or the creation of insanitary conditions. 2) At approximately 1245hrs while examining the upstairs stockroom it was observed that in the back by the bay receiving area contained empty boxes and garbage. This is in violation of regulation: 9CFR 416.1 which states: “Each official establishment must be operated and maintained in a manner sufficient to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and to ensure that product is not adulterated.” As well as regulation: 9CFR 416.2(a) which states” (a) 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.” 3) At approximately 1300hrs while examining the receiving area it was noticed that the freezer door had a trail of rust and rusty discoloration running from the door handle to the bottom of the door. It was an approximately 1” wide and 2”-3” long stream. Mr. Douglas Corwin (owner) and Mr. (floor manager) were immediately notified of the non-compliances. No Product was adulterated or food contact surface contaminated at the time. So No tags were applied..
