Cabin Hollow Butcher Shop

Address: 156 Old Cabin Hollow Rd, Dillsburg, PA 17019
Establishment No.: m09819

USDA Inspection Report: 10 Jan 2011

Code: 01B02
Violation: 416.13(a), 416.3(a), 416.4(a)

Citation: On Monday January 10, 2011 at 01100 hours the following non-compliance was observed: Prior to the start of slaughter activities, I conducted a scheduled pre-operational sanitation procedure. The establishment's records were completed and all equipment was recorded as clean and acceptable for use. The large carcass splitting saw had a piece of UFM (unidentified foreign material) from prior use approximately one inch in diameter inside the nose of the saw as well as many discernable pieces of the same type of residue around the blade guide at the rear of the saw as well as underneath the handle area. Also, the hacksaw that is located in the final wash had numerous smears and pieces of dried, UFM that ran along the entire length of the side of the blade that was facing the wall as if it was only hosed off on one side and not both sides of the blade. I notified Slaughter Manager [redacted] of these deficiencies at which time he cleaned these pieces of equipment to an acceptable condition in my presence. No Regulatory Control Action was required. The kill floor area was released for use at 01105.


416.13(a) Each official establishment shall conduct the pre-operational procedures in the Sanitation SOPís before the start of operations.

416.3(a) Equipment and utensils used for processing or otherwise handling edible product or ingredients must be of such material and construction to facilitate thorough cleaning and to ensure that their use will not cause the adulteration of product during processing, handling, or storage. Equipment and utensils must be maintained in sanitary condition so as not to adulterate product.

416.4(a) All food-contact surfaces, including food-contact surfaces of utensils and equipment, must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.
