Champlain Beef Inc.
Address: 9679 State Rt 4, Whitehall, NY 12887
Establishment No.: m8547
USDA Inspection Report: 17 Mar 2011
Violation: 416.2(b)(2), 416.4(b)
Citation: On 3/17/2011 at approximately 1400 the following noncompliance was observed by CSI and SVMO Dr. . 8 out of 10 fan covers on the cooling units in the first carcass cooler against the wall near the retain cage have what appear to be dust and surface rust on them. Also the white wall board in the blood pit has a large hole about 8 inches in circumference that needs to be repaired. This is a noncompliance of 9 CFR 416.2(b) and 416.4(d) and the plants own plan. I notified about the noncompliance's. This document serves as written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in further regulatory action. As always you have the right to appeal.
416.2(b)(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.
416.4(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.
