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

USDA Inspection Report: 13 Apr 2011

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

Citation: On April 13, 2011 at approximately 0550 hours 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 bulk grind department. #1 and #2 blenders with a build up of a black foreign material on the 2 inch stainless steel angle iron that runs lengthwise in these blenders to accommodate the bar grating lids. This black foreign material covered the two inch width and was approximately four feet in length in both of these blenders. No regulatory control action was taken because the plant took immediate action to clean and sanitize these blenders prior to the start of operations. 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.


416.13(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.
