Establishment No.: m09590

USDA Inspection Report: 6 Oct 2011

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.2(b)(3), 416.4(c)

Citation: During the recent FSA the following deficiencies were observed. The following information details those deficiencies and observations. 2. The establishment failed to maintain the facility in a manner to prevent the entrance of vermin, such as flies, rats and mice. Visible gaps were observed between the outer wall of the facility and the sliding door located along the outer wall of the Inedible Area. This fails to meet the regulatory requirements of 9CFR 416.2(b)(3). Additionally, the establishment failed to provide support that the chemicals used within the facility are safe and effective under the conditions of use, and they failed to store these chemicals in a manner to prevent the adulteration of product or creation of insanitary conditions. A hand-held plastic spray bottle containing an unidentified liquid was observed in the Kill Floor area. A second hand-held plastic spray bottle containing a liquid identified as "[redacted] was observed hanging from a coat/apron rack in the hallway. There was no identification of the concentration of quaternary ammonium. This fails to meet the regulatory requirements of 9CFR 416.4(c)
