Establishment No.: m09696

USDA Inspection Report: 7 Jul 2011

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.1, 416.2(b)(1), 417.5(a)(1), 416.1, 416.2(a)

Citation: Today, while performing an unscheduled 06D01 task, I observed the following deficiencies around the outside perimeter of the building. The grass and weeds growing against the building are approximately 6 to 8 inches high, creating ideal conditions for rodents to hide. There is also several empty meat boxes piled on the ground between the burn barrels and the dumpster. These deficiencies are creating an insanitary condition around the plant. 9CFR 416.1 states " Each official establishment must be operated and maintained in a manner sufficient to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and to ensure that product is not adulterated." and 9CFR 416.2(a) states in part that, "The grounds about an establishment must be maintained to prevent conditions that could lead to insanitary conditions, adulteration of product, or interfere with inspection by FSIS employees." Mr. was verbally notified of this non-compliance and also in writing with this report.

Regulation:

416.1 Each official establishment must be operated and maintained in a manner sufficient to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and to ensure that product is not adulterated.

416.2(b)(1) Construction. 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.

417.5(a)(1) The establishment shall maintain the following records documenting the establishment’s HACCP plan: The written hazard analysis prescribed in § 417.2(a) of this part, including all supporting documentation

416.2(a) Grounds and pest control. The grounds about an establishment must be maintained to prevent conditions that could lead to insanitary conditions, adulteration of product, or interfere with inspection by FSIS program employees. Establishments must have in place a pest management program to prevent the harborage and breeding of pests on the grounds and within establishment facilities. Pest control substances used must be safe and effective under the conditions of use and not be applied or stored in a manner that will result in the adulteration of product or the creation of insanitary conditions.
