T.P. Cunningham Meats

Address: 81 Cunningham Rd, Indiana PA, 15701
Establishment No.: m09410

USDA Inspection Report: 14 Oct 2010

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

Citation: At 07:00 while performing pre-operational inspection in the processing room after the plant had completed their pre-operational inspection the following noncompliance was observed. The knife rack has meat and fat buildup from the previous day's operation. No tag was applied as the rack was taken out of service. The frame of the pork cutting table has a buildup of grease along the underside of the frame. The rail and support beam adjacent to the beef cutting table is starting to rust. [redacted] was notified of these noncompliances. This is a violation of 9CFR416.1 which states, "Each official establishment must be operated and maintained in a manner sufficient to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and to ensure that product is not adulterated". 9CFR416.4 (a) which states, "All food-contact surfaces, including 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". And 9CFR416.13 (a) which stats, "Each official establishment shall conduct the preoperational procedures in the Sanitation SOP's before the start of operations". I checked for similar NR's and found none. This document serves as written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional regulatory or administrative actions. Mr. [redacted] is also advised of his right to appeal this NR as delineated in 9 CFR 306.5.

Regulation:

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

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.
