The heater above the hand wash sink in the slaughter area has rust and peeling paint. 2. The scale in the Scale Room has peeling paint around the upper section. 3. The heater in the Scale Room has rust on the back side and bottom. There was no product involved and all areas are non product contact areas. There was no further regulatory action taken. Mr. [redacted] was verbally notified of the noncompliance and the failure to comply with sections 416.1, 416.2(b)(1), and 416.4(b) of the Meat Inspection Regulations Sanitation Performance Standards. The establishments SSOP record dated 02/23/2011 did not record that this noncompliance was observed during the establishments sanitation inspections.. There are no similar noncompliance records on file. This document serves as written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional regulatory or administrative action.
