USDA Inspection Report: 9 Dec 2010

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.1, 416.2(b)(1), 416.2(b)(2), 416.4(b)

Citation: At approximately 08:00 AM on December 09, 2010, while performing unscheduled PBIS procedure code 06D01, the following noncompliances were observed. 1. Holding cooler has a rusty water stain on the wall to right of door from the boning room, and rust on the brackets for the temperature probe. 2. Shipping cooler has rust on the clamps for the drain lines, and a rusty water stain on inside of cooler door. 3. Sausage room has rust on clamps on the drain lines. Several wheels on the cart for the spice barrels have some rust. 4.The door leading to the cutting room has broken seal along the bottom of the door. [redacted] was verbally notified of the above noncompliances. I reviewed the SSOP & SPS corrective action logs and facilities PIP list, found no documentation on the above deficiencies. This is a violation of Part 416.1, "Establishment buildings, including their structures, rooms, and compartments must be of sound construction, be kept in good repair, and be of sufficient size to allow for processing, handling, and storage of product in a manner that does not result in product adulteration or the creation of insanitary conditions," 416.2(b)(1) "Establishment buildings, including their structures, rooms, and compartments must be of sound construction, be kept in good repair, and be of sufficient size to allow for processing, handling, and storage of product in a manner that does not result in product adulteration or the creation of insanitary conditions. (2) Walls, floors, and ceilings within establishments must be built of durable materials impervious to moisture and be cleaned and sanitized as necessary to prevent adulteration of product or the creation of insanitary conditions." 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." I reviewed NR file, found no recent noncompliance reports of this nature.
