Putting Glass Walls on Pennsylvania Slaughterhouses So We Can See Behind Closed Doors from FAUN Friends Of Animals United
John E. Martin & Sons

Address: 55 Lower Hillside Rd, Stevens, PA 17578
Establishment No.: m08888

USDA Inspection Report: 27 Jul 2010

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

Citation: Prior to the start of (01B02) pre-operational sanitation I tried to locate a QC Tech to notify them of this inspection, however I was not able to locate QC at this time. At 0520 Hr. while conducting the 01B02 procedure, I observed in the Bacon Department the belt and drive wheel into the bacon packaging machine (Curwood) had fat and meat on it. This is a food contact surface and I applied a US Reject Tag No. B34 802841 to this equipment. I notified QC Tech at 0525 Hr. of this non-compliance. This does not meet the regulatory requirements of 9 CFR 416.13(c) and 416.4(a).


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

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.
