T.P. Cunningham Meats

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

USDA Inspection Report: 9 Dec 2010

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.1, 416.4(b)

Citation: At 06:45 while performing a scheduled pre-operational inspection procedure in the raw meat processing room, after the plant had performed their inspection, the following Sanitation Performance Standard noncompliance was observed. The underside of the cutting boards and frames of the small pork table, the cutting table next to the beef band saw and the table located by the stuffer had blood and fat particles from the previous day's operation. [redacted] was notified of this noncompliance. This is creating an insanitary condition and is a violation of 9CFR416.1 "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." And 9CFR416.4(b) which states "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. No regulatory action was taken as all the tables were immediately cleaned, sanitized and reinspected and found acceptable. 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:

416.1 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.

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.
