Address: Rt. 706, Wyalusing PA 18853
Establishment No.: m09400

USDA Inspection Report: 25 Mar 2011

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.4(b)

Citation: On March 25, 2011 at approximately 0533 while performing procedure code 01B02 Pre-Operational Sanitation Inspection after the establishment's pre-operational sanitation procedures were completed, I observed the following noncompliance in the dressing floor department. The Horn Clipper Sanitizer with only a bubbling of water coming out of it when the button is pushed to sanitize the horn clippers between use. A U. S. Reject tag #B38527496 was applied to the horn clippers to curtail usage of them, being no working sanitizer available. I also noted in Bulk Grind Department that #1 Combo Bin Dumper with an accumulation of meat and fat particles and a pink slime on the hydraulic hoses and cylinders used to raise and dump combo bins of product into the hoppers. This accumulation completely covered 80 percent of all hydraulic hoses, and approximately 25 percent of the cylinders. A U. S. Reject tag #B38527493 was applied to this combo bin dumper. There was no indication that these noncompliances were identified by the establishment. No product was affected since these noncompliances were found on pre-operational sanitation.


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.
