USDA Inspection Report: 16 Feb 2011

Code: 06D01
Violation:  416.1, 416.2(b)(1)

Citation: On February 16, 2011 at 1130hrs while on my inspection tour of the cooler and freezer areas I found a number of non-compliances. On the base of the cooler door the kick plate was missing, exposing the base with a number of holes and rust-like protions. Since no product was directly affected or adulterated no tags were issued. Mr. manager, was immediately informed of the non-compliance . He explained that the bottom plate came off during cleaning and was being sent out for repair. While inspecting the freezer, the left side of the room's boxed product were leaning against the freezer wall. This denied accessed to inspecting that side of the freezer's area of product. U.S. Mr. was immediately informed of this non-compliance. He explained that they were working on reorganizing the freezer and have not completed the task yet. These non-compliances are both in violation of the following regulations: Regulation 9CFR 416.1 which states "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." Regulation 9CFR 416.2((b)(1) which states "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.

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(b)(1) 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.
