There was mold growth on the wall of the room. There was mold on the frocks hanging on the wall pegs. Newly washed frocks were placed on a table that had multiples areas of mold growth. Some of the ceiling tiles in this room had mold growth. The wooden shelf had moldy arm gators. Regulatory control tag, tag number B24033451, was placed on the door. Mold was observed on the door frame of the door leading into the establishment. There was a gap between the door and the frame about 1/4 of inch. There was no available light in the room that stores the water pump preventing inspection of this area. Mr. [redacted] HACCP manager, was verbally notified of the non-compliance. The establishment is not complying with 9CFR 416.1, 416.2(a), 416.2(c), and 416.4(b).

416.2(a) Grounds and pest control. The grounds about an establishment must be maintained to prevent conditions that could lead to insanitary conditions, adulteration of product, or interfere with inspection by FSIS program employees. Establishments must have in place a pest management program to prevent the harborage and breeding of pests on the grounds and within establishment facilities. Pest control substances used must be safe and effective under the conditions of use and not be applied or stored in a manner that will result in the adulteration of product or the creation of insanitary conditions.

416.2(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.
