Establishment No.: m17965

USDA Inspection Report: 7 Sep 2010

Code: 06D01
Violation:  416.2(a)

Citation: During the FSA while a walk around of Gold Medal Packing was being conducted the below potential hazard was noted. The facility failed to prevent the potential breeding ground and harborage for flies and other insects by only partially covering the pit on the left side of the facility, which collects the wastewater from the processing room and the kill floors. This is a violation of 416.2(a), which states, (a) Grounds and pest control. 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. Establishments must have in place a pest management program to prevent the harborage and breeding of pests on the grounds and within establishment facilities
