USDA Inspection Report: 28 Sep 2010

Code: 06D01
Violation:  416.1, 416.2(a)

Citation: On September 28, 2010 at 0720 while walking to the Live Holding Pens to watch the employees move the pigs into the killing area I observed beside the main entrance to the slaughter house a ladder laying on its side that has leaves and debris around it. Next to the Live Holding Pens there are two garden hoses, several fence logs, a broken squeeze chute, a broom and a shovel. Mr. was informed immediately. The Regulations in Section 416.1 state "Each official establishment must be operated and maintained in a manner sufficient to prevent the creation of unsanitary conditions and to ensure that product is not adulterated." The Regulations in Section 416.2(a) state "The grounds about an establishment must be maintained to prevent conditions that could lead to unsanitary conditions, adulteration of product, or interfere with inspection by FSIS program employees." The Regulations in Section 416.1 and 416.2(a) have not been met.

Regulation:

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(a) Grounds and pest control. The grounds about an establishment must be maintained to prevent conditions that could lead to insanitary conditions, adulteration of product, or interfere with inspection by FSIS program employees. Establishments must have in place a pest management program to prevent the harborage and breeding of pests on the grounds and within establishment facilities. Pest control substances used must be safe and effective under the conditions of use and not be applied or stored in a manner that will result in the adulteration of product or the creation of insanitary conditions.
