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: 10 Sep 2010

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

Citation: While conducting pre-operational sanitation inspection at 0730 in the processing area, I noticed that the wall behind the cutting table had small particles of fat in various areas. Also, in the corner of the south and west wall were two beef bones lying on the floor behind the barrel that is used for collecting bones sold to customers for dogs. On the north wall were small particles of fat around the area where the in place cleaning system is connected. The floor outside of the cutting room and dock area has a residue buildup creating an insanitary condition. 9 CFR 416.13(a) states: Each official establishment shall conduct the pre-operational procedures in the Sanitation SOP's before the start of operations. 9 CFR 416.13(c) states: Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP's. At the time I conducted the inspection , plant management had not filled out the SSOP checklist. The SSOP pre-operational plan says that non-food contact surfaces(as in walls) will be cleaned to prevent an insanitary condition. There was no product in this room and product that would be produced in this room would not be affected by these deficiencies. I notified [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:

416.13(a) Each official establishment shall conduct the pre-operational procedures in the Sanitation SOPís before the start of operations.

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