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 Jul 2010

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.2(b)(1), 416.2(b)(2)

Citation: On July 29th at 1400 hrs while conducting an unscheduled (06D01) procedure, a walk through, I observed the following: The blast freezer ceiling is in disrepair, there are gaps between ceiling tiles, the length of these tiles, not allowing for proper sanitizing of structure, there is a bent ceiling tile, there are scuff marks on the walls, there are pieces of pallet debris strewn about the floor. The bottom of the swinging doors appear to be worn. The product is too close to the walls not allowing for an inspectable perimeter. I immediately informed , plant manager of these deficiencies. We then checked on product that is stored in this freezer and observed no adulteration, boxed product and boxes themselves appear intact and free of debris. No tag was applied. This is in noncompliance with Title 9CFR 416.2(b)(1) which requires establishment buildings, including their structures, rooms and compartments to be of sound construction and kept in good repair. (2) 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.

Regulation:

416.2(b)(1) Establishment buildings, including their structures, rooms, and compartments must be of sound construction, be kept in good repair, and be of sufficient size to allow for processing, handling, and storage of product in a manner that does not result in product adulteration or the creation of insanitary conditions.

416.2(b)(2) 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.
