Address: 122 Greenpoint Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11222
Establishment No.: p4734

USDA Inspection Report: 12 May 2012

Code: 01B02
Violation:  416.13(c), 416.4(a)

Citation: On Saturday, May 12, 2012, at approximately 0625 hours, after establishment had completed their pre-operational inspection and prior to start of the operation, I observed the following non-compliance.  In edible cooler #2, an empty stainless steel tank, ready to be used for production of the day to hold finished products until packing and delivery, was found with 1" to 2 "-wide rings of white residues from previous day(s) production covering inside walls at about 4" height from bottom of the tank.  A regulatory control action was initiated with an U. S. Rejected Tag (#B38033334) applied to restrict use of this tank until corrective action could be performed.  Evidence was immediately shown to the plant manager, nbsp; No product was affected.[newline]This non-compliance is a violation of 9 CFR 416.13 (c) and 9 CFR 416.4 (a).  Continued failure to meet the regulatory requirements would lead to further enforcement action.

Regulation:

416.13(c) Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s.

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.
