Putting Glass Walls on New York's Slaughterhouses So We Can See Behind Closed Doors
Gold Medal Packing

Address: 8269 River Rd, Rome, NY 13424
Establishment No.: m17965

USDA Inspection Report: 5 Nov 2010

Code: 01C02
Violation:  416.4(a), 416.4(d)

Citation: On this day at 10:30 AM while performing dispositions at the disposition rail I checked the moving viscera table. I noticed a small to moderate amount of blood remaining on the trays after they went through the sanitizing cycle. I counted trays and estimated that 80% of them came through the cycle containing blood. .Since hearts are on these trays cross-contamination could be a potential problem, although most of the blood was confined to one side of the pans. I notified HACCP coordinator. 416.4(a) states "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 adulteration of product. 416.4 (d) states "Product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, storage, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments.

Regulation:

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.

416.4(d) Product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, storage, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments.
