Establishment No.: m4999

USDA Inspection Report: 28 Jul 2011

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.1, 416.4(b), 416.4(c)

Citation: At approximately 0900 hours while performing scheduled ISP code 06D01 storage/compressor room adjacent to the kill floor I observed the following deficiencies. There are several pieces of unused equipment: ban saw, grinder, exhaust fan, etc. There are some empty boxes stored on top of the unused equipment. There is an accumulation of dirt and debris on the floor around the compressors and hot water tank. There are chemical containers stored directly on the floor. There is an excessive amount of mineral oil on the table that holds the wet stone. There are several old knives stored in the voids of the wall near the wet stone. There is an accumulation of trays, boxes, and bags on the ledge next to the variety meats cooler. A check of the daily SSOP records found that these deficiencies were not documented. No tag applied. No product involved. This is a violation of FSIS regulations 416.1, 416.4(b), and 416.4(c). I notified Mr. orally and in writing with this NR of the noncompliance.


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.

416.4(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.

416.4(c) Cleaning compounds, sanitizing agents, processing aids, and other chemicals used by an establishment must be safe and effective under the conditions of use. Such chemicals must be used, handled, and stored in a manner that will not adulterate product or create insanitary conditions. Documentation substantiating the safety of a chemical’s use in a food processing environment must be available to FSIS inspection program employees for review.
