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

USDA Inspection Report: 24 Aug 2011

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

Citation: At 06:45 while performing pre-operational inspection in the processing room after the plant had released the area for production the following noncompliance was observed. Six of the 15 lugs had meats scraps on the inside and along the handle areas from the previous day production. The underside of the cutting boards of the beef cutting table was stained with dry blood from the previous day production. The underside of the cutting boards and frame of the table next to the patty machine had meat scraps and a black mold like substance along the edge where the cutting boards rest on the frame. [redacted] was notified of these noncompliances. No regulatory control action was taken as the lugs were taken out of service and the tables were immediately cleaned. This is a violation of 416.4(a), 416.4(b) and 416.13(c). 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(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.

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.
