Address: 8937 Beckwith Rd, Taberg, NY 13471
Establishment No.: m4482
USDA Inspection Report: 28 Jul 2010
Citation: On Wednesday, 28 July 2010, while perfoming an unscheduled 06D01 procedure, inspection results revealed a large gap under the door of the meat smoking room leading into the garage area. The above mentioned gap is approximately an inch off the ground, possible allowing the entrance of vermin and rodents. After discussion with plant management, it was concluded that the weather stripping previously in place on that door had come off. This is a violation of the following regulation(s): ä 416.2 Establishment grounds and facilities. (b) Construction. (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.
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.
