Putting Glass Walls on New York's Slaughterhouses So We Can See Behind Closed Doors
Locust Grove Farm

Address: 4725 State Rt 40, Argyle, NY 12809
Establishment No.: M4265

USDA Inspection Reports: 8 Sep 2011

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.2(b)(1), 416.2(b)(3)

Citation: At approximately 8:35 am while doing pre-op, I noticed the door in the waste room leading to the outside had an approximate gap on the bottom of about 1 to 1 and 1/2 inches. This gap can allow entrance to vermin such as rodents and flies. This is in violation of Regulation 416.2(b) which states in part; "Construction, Establishment buildings, including their structures, rooms, and compartments must be of sound construction, be kept in repair",...ect.and also a violation of Regulation 416.2(b)3 which states; " Walls, floors, windows, and other openings must be constructed and maintained to prevent the entrance of vermin, such as flies, rats, and mice. After reviewing the plants noncompliance records I found a noncompliance to still be open dated 07/14/2011 concerning the 2 doors in the slaughter room addressing the same problem as having considerable space under and around the doors. I notified and Mr. of these noncompliance's both verbally and with this noncompliance document.

Regulation:

416.2(b)(1) Construction. 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)(3) Walls, floors, ceilings, doors, windows, and other outside openings must be constructed and maintained to prevent the entrance of vermin, such as flies, rats, and mice.
