Citation: While walking through the carcass cooler at 1100 I observed the following deficiencies; 1. There is a broken piece of cement about 5 in. long by 2 in. wide, about 1 ft. from the floor, broken off of a corner near the red barrel just inside the door. 2. The floor has an extreme amount of blood and is very slippery. 3. The metal shelf is rusty and has unidentified debris. 4. The red barrel just inside the door has grease and black unidentified marks on it. 5. The black plastic shelf has particles of meat and grease on it. 6. The corner wall, about a ft. long is cracked and in need of repair. I informed owner, Jake Bucher of there noncompliance's. I placed tags (B21737968 and B21737975) on the metal shelf and the plastic shelf. This does not comply with CFR regulation 416..1 and 416..4(b).
