Address: 1868 California Rd, Richlandtown, PA 18955
Establishment No.: m09704

USDA Inspection Report: 20 Jun 2011

Code: 01D04
Violation: 416.2(b)(2)

Citation: At approximately 0920 hours, while performing a Sanitation Performance Standards inspection on the Slaughter Floor, I observed that the top surface of the floor is breaking up in the area around the scalder and there are bubbles where the top surface has separated from the sub surface creating pockets that can not be efficiently cleaned and sanitized. There was no product affected and no regulatory control action was taken.
Mr. [redacted] was verbally notified of the noncompliance and the failure to comply with section 416.2(b)(2) of the Meat Inspection Regulations Sanitation Performance Standards. This noncompliance was not documented on the establishments sanitation form dated 6/20/2011. There is no similar noncompliance on record.


416.2(b)(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.
