Establishment No.: m8547
USDA Inspection Report: 16 Nov 2011
Violation: 416.1, 416.2(h)(2)
Citation: On November 16, 2011, while performing a SPS verification of the facilities, I found there were no paper towels in the employee restroom. This is non-compliant with 9 CFR 416.2(h)(2): Hot and cold running water, soap, and towels. I checked again two hours later and the towel holder had not been refilled. I then Notified Mr. who took immediate action by installing a new roll of paper towels, thus bringing the restroom back into compliance. This notice servers as a written documentation of your failure to remail compliant with federal requirements. Further failure could result in additional regulatory or administrative action. You have the right to appeal this Non-compliance Record.
