See Behind Closed Doors
Address: 2782 Drum Rd, Middleport, NY 14105
Establishment No.: m4530
USDA Inspection Report: 4 Aug 2011
Citation: At approximately 0930 hours, the following non-compliance was observed. While exiting the custom and retail processing room of the official establishment, I observed the bottom of the fron entrance steel door is not tight fitting, and has a gap at the bottom large enough that it will not prevent the entrance of pests, such as insects and rodents. At the far right end of the bottom of the door, the gap is at least 1/4" or more, and extends approximately 4 inches. Daylight can be observed nearly the entire length of the bottom of the door. No pest activity was observed within the official establishment. Plant owner, Mr. John Britt ws notified and observed the above stated non-compliance. A review of past non-compliance reports revealed no trend developing at this time.
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.
