Cornell Cooperative Extension

Address: 350 Yaphank Ave, Yaphank, NY 11980
Establishment No.: m4675

USDA Inspection Report: 14 Oct 2010

Code: 06D01
Violation:  416.4(b)

Citation: On October 14, 2010 at 0700 while doing a pre-operational sanitation inspection I observed the scale at the end of the slaughter line. There is a brown (rust) residue on the weights and at the base measuring about one half inch to one inch in diameter at several different places. A regulatory control action was initiated to restrict use of the scale until corrective action could be performed (Tag # B 23789745). Mr. was immediately informed. The Regulations in Section 416.4(b) state "Non-food-contact surfaces of facilities, equipment, and utensils used in the operation of the establishment must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of unsanitary conditions and the adulteration of product." The Regulations in Section 416.4(b) have not been met.

Regulation:

416.4(b) Non-food-contact surfaces of facilities, equipment, and utensils used in the operation of the establishment must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.
