Emerick's Meat & Pkg Co., Inc.

Address: 1966 Hyndman Rd, Hyndman PA, 15545
Establishment No.: m4607

USDA Inspection Report: 29 Aug 2011

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.1, 416.2(d)

Citation: At approximately 12:30 hrs. on the day of 08/29/2011 I was performing the scheduled task of 06D01 and the following noncompliance was observed. In the carcass chill cooler, the refrigeration unit was dripping water from the underside of the unit. There was no product under the unit all day long. I then proceeded to show and informed him of the noncompliance and that I would be documenting at this time. No regulatory control action was taken due to no product involvement. This is in violation of regulation 416.1 which states that: 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(d) Ventilation. Ventilation adequate to control odors, vapors, and condensation to the extent necessary to prevent adulteration of product and the creation of insanitary conditions must be provided. I then checked the NR file for similar NR's from 90 days past and found none.

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(d) Ventilation adequate to control odors, vapors, and condensation to the extent necessary to prevent adulteration of product and the creation of insanitary conditions must be provided.
