David Elliot Poultry Farm Inc.

Address: 300 Breck St, Scranton PA 18505
Establishment No.: m7559

USDA Inspection Report: 17 Nov 2011

Code: 01C02
Violation: 416.2(c)

Citation: On 11/17/2011 at approximately 08:30 I was informed by plant management that the lighting at CCP#1, Zero Tolerance check at pre-chiller was malfunctioning. I immediately went to observe and check conditions at this inspection station. Lighting was not functioning at all at this time. Plant management informed us that until this malfunction is corrected they will carry the 10 bird checks in lugs to the secondary checkpoint at Chiller exit to perform their Zero Tolerance checks. Same procedure will be conducted when inspection personnel perform our Zero Tolerance checks throughout the day. This lighting malfunction is in noncompliance with 9 CFR 416.2(c), which states in part: (c) Light. Lighting of good quality and sufficient intensity to ensure that sanitary conditions are maintained and that product is not adulterated must be provided in areas where food is processed, handled, stored, or examined; where equipment and utensils are cleaned; and in hand-washing areas, dressing and locker rooms, and toilets.
