Putting Glass Walls on Pennsylvania Slaughterhouses So We Can See Behind Closed Doors from FAUN Friends Of Animals United
New Wilmington Slaughterhouse

Address: 305 Easy St, New Wilmington, PA 16142
Establishment No.: m08609

USDA Inspection Report: 30 Jul 2010

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.1, 416.4(b)

Citation: While conducting an unscheduled Sanitation Performance Standards task at 0830, I noticed the following deficiencies within and around the slaughter room area. No product can come in contact with these items. The white aluminum doorway frame leading into the carcass wash room has a protein buildup above the carcass rail. The wall behind the splitting saw has protein residue nearest the same doorway. There are cobwebs attached to a light fixture and wall above the maintenance room and above the sterilizer nearest the door leading out to the knocking box. The cobwebs are attached to the light fixture and water pipes that run along side the fixture. The stainless steel treehooks being stored in the carcass wash room have very small particles of fat and protein residue on the hooks and the pipe holding them. These deficiencies are not a food contact hazard but do contribute to an insanitary condition within the slaughter area. 9 CFR 416.1 states: 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. 9CFR 416.4(b) states: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. I notifed [redacted] of these deficiencies and that this serves as written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional regulatory and/ or administrative action.

Regulation:

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.
