[newline] In the Smokehouse area there is a door frame going from the smokehouse to the Old Ham Boning room, this frame is chipping and exposing the interior surface of the frame. [newline]No control action nor tags were applied as these surfaces are not product contact and no product adulteration was observed. The condition of the doors and frames stated is resulting in uncleanable surfaces. Dr. was given verbal notification of the stated noncompliance. This is written notification of facilities noncompliance. The requirements of the Meat and Poultry Regulations 416.1, 416.2b1, and 416.4d were not met. [newline]
