Establishment No.: m17965
USDA Inspection Report: 1 Aug 2011
Violation: 416.1, 416.2(d)
Citation: On this day 8/1/11 at 12:30pm, while in the hide cooler, I noticed that the compressor in the middle by the paper towel dispenser was dripping like it was raining. The drops were hitting the shelf and spattering all over on boxes and plastic bags. I also noticed that there was ice on three units and they were all compensating and dripping. There was no product involved but the condensation and dripping and splattering all over the place creates an unsanitary condition. This is a violation of 9 CFR 416.1 and 416.2(d). Past Similar NRs - Previous Ineffective Plant Actions: failure to maintain sanitary conditions NR: 32-2011 dated 6/30/2011
416.1 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.
416.2(d) Ventilation adequate to control odors, vapors, and condensation to the extent necessary to prevent adulteration of product and the creation of insanitary conditions must be provided.
