Address: Route 209, Gilbert, PA 18331
Establishment No.: m09465

USDA Inspection Report: 29 Jul 2010

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.2(c), 416.4(b)

Citation: At 0700 hrs on the 29th of July, while performing preoperational sanitation verification (01B02), I observed the following noncompliance: Cooler #2 * mold on two overhead plastic lights; Cooler #4 * mold on several overhead plastic lights; * mold on the ceiling in back and on the side of the overhead cooling unit; * one overhead light has no fluorescent bulbs, resulting in inadequate illumination while performing operational/preoperational verification inspection. [redacted] slaughter supervisor, was advised of the aforementioned noncompliance. The plant's daily sanitation monitoring log has no documentation reflecting the insanitary conditions. 9 CFR 416.4(b) states that 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. 9 CFR 416.2(c) Lighting of good quality and sufficient intensity to ensure that sanitary conditions are maintained and that product is not adulterated must be provided in areas where food is processed, handled, stored, or examined; where equipment and utensils are cleaned; and in hand-washing areas, dressing and locker rooms, and toilets.
