New Lee's Live Poultry Market
Address: 122 Greenpoint Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11222
Establishment No.: p4734
USDA Inspection Report: 24 Jan 2012
Violation: 416.1, 416.4(b)
Citation: On Tuesday, January 24, 2012, at approximately 0625 hours, after the establishment had completed the pre-operational inspection and before the start of the operation, I observed the following non-compliances. In the scalding/picking area, the ceiling and light cover above the scalder vat were found with accumulated feathers, dust, and old residues, creating an insanitary condition. A regulatory control action was initiated (U. S. Rejected Tag#B39907628) to restrict the use of this area until corrective action could be performed. The evidence was immediately shown to the Plant Manager, No product was affected. [newline][newline]This is a non-compliance with Regulation 9CFR416.1 and 416.4 (b). Continued failure to meet regulatory requirement would lead to further enforcement action.
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.
416.4(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.
