Citation: At approximately 6:20 am, SPHV and CSI observed the following non-compliance: We observed a 1.5 inch long roach crawling on the desk in the USDA inspection office. Operations for the day had not yet started, and the USDA office is separated (although not completely sealed off) from the packaging/chilling area. No product was present in the packaging/chilling area. Mr. was called and he killed the roach. He was notified that this is a non-compliance.
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.

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.
416.4(a) All food-contact surfaces, including food-contact surfaces of utensils and equipment, must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.
