Address: 3150 Coffeetown Rd, Orefield, PA 18069
Establishment No.: m791
USDA Inspection Report: 18 Oct 2011
Citation: At approximately 2230 hours, while performing review and operational SSOP in room 2280, I observed Equipment # 7815 ( Polar ), #4933 and #4490 ( Ham Tumblers ) in an unsanitary condition. I noticed Production hasn't started in this area yet, due to the fact that the equipment was not assembled yet. I requested the SSOP Pre-Operational monitoring sheet from Mr. Supervisor of smoked Meats. Upon review of the monitoring sheet, I did observe that the above mentioned equipment was verified by Plant personnel, but no documentation was observed of the following noncompliances: Polar # 7815: At the infeed end of the polar inside the Drum ( Product contact ) at the top of the drum was a large area covered with yellowish white product residue which covered an area approximately 6 to 7 inches long by 4 inches wide. Ham Tumbler's # 4933 and # 4490 contained particulates of product residue inside the Drum ( Product contact) residue was white in color and ranged in size approximately 1/16 inch to 3/16 inch. In Tumbler # 4933 there were to many particulates to count and in Tumbler # 4490 there were approximately 5 Particulates. I rejected the Polar and 2 Tumblers with USDA reject tag # B 34720449 and informed Mr. of the noncompliance. The Equipment was recleaned and reinspected and released.
416.4(a) All food-contact surfaces, including food-contact surfaces of utensils and equipment, must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.
