USDA Inspection Report: 10 Feb 2012

Code: 01D01
Violation: 416.1, 416.2(b)(1), 416.2(h)(3), 416.4(b), 416.5(b)

Citation: Today,Friday February, 10 2012 the following Sanitation Performance Standards non-compliances are being documented:

The garbage cans within the establishment are not being maintained in a sanitary matter. They are exhibiting a black mildew (and in some instances) a mold type build-up. The stainless steel covered table that is located near the plant telephone has many rust flakes accumulating on the bottom shelf from the under side of the table and quite possibly the legs and is need of cleaning as there are plastic product pans and other various equipment being stored there. In the shipping/receiving area, there is what appears to be loose insulation and debris which has accumulated between the small scale and the freezer box. In the kill floor area, the pole that is used to hang roller hooks onto the carcass rail has a large amount of a light colored buildup of foreign residue which would come in contact with employees’ hands. Also in the kill floor area, the red water hose located beside the head inspection rack has a thick, black residue build up along the length of the hose. In the processing room, the exhaust air /return vent that is located over the boning tables is begging to rust through the paint and could potentially lead to product contamination. Having spoken with Gerald about this, he stated that he is in contact with somebody to replace the entire vent with something that will not rust in the future. These are failures to meet the requirements of 416.1, 416.2(b)(1), 416.2(h)(3), 416.4(b). Also observed was the lack of hooks/hangers for employees to hangs coats and aprons when leaving the processing area for breaks. I have observed coats and aprons being hung on the hot water tank in the break room as well as aprons and cutting gloves being left on a hose that is wound up along a wall outside of the processing room. This is a failure to meet 416.5(b) as well as the establishment’s own SSOP. I notified Owner Gerald Jones that I would be documenting this non-compliance record.


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.

416.2(h)(3) Refuse receptacles must be constructed and maintained in a manner that protects against the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.

416.4(b) Non-food-contact surfaces of facilities, equipment, and utensils used in the operation of the establishment must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.

416.5(b) Clothing. Aprons, frocks, and other outer clothing worn by persons who handle product must be of material that is disposable or readily cleaned. Clean garments must be worn at the start of each working day and garments must be changed during the day as often as necessary to prevent adulteration of product and the creation of insanitary conditions.
