PROCESSING AREA- RETAIL 1. The drain leading into the smokehouse area was missing a drain vent cover. 2. The lights inside the cooler in the smokehouse area have a rust build-up on them. 9 CFR 416.2 (b) (1) states "Establishment building s, including the their structures, rooms, and compartments must be of sound construction, be kept in good repair, and be of sufficient size to allow for processing, handling, and storage of product in a manner that does not result in product adulteration or the creation of insanitary conditions." 9 CFR 316.15 (a) Outside containers of inedible grease, inedible tallow, or other inedible animal fat, or mixture of any such articles, resulting from operations at any official establishment shall be marked conspicuously with the word "inedible" prior to removal from the point of filling.

The SSOP pre-operational plan states that [redacted]. At current time no product being produced on slaughter floor, and product produced would not be in contact with defected area. I notified [redacted] of the noncompliance and that this serves as written notification that failure to comply regulatory requirement could result in additional regulatory and/or administrative action.
