Address: 1 River Rd, Juniata Cty, Mifflintown, PA 17059
Establishment No.: p1015

USDA Inspection Report: 21 Oct 2010

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.4(b)

Citation: While performing ISP 01B02 (preoperational sanitation) at establishment 01015-P, the following facility product-based noncompliance (ISP 06D01) was found within the ground poultry process. Although the Ground poultry process had a Quality Assurance tag attached to the Ross Map Machine, the equipment inline down-stream from the Ross was found with what appeared to be mold, dried meat scraps, and ground meat scraps from previous productions. Also found throughout the equipment's frame work and supporting structures were what appeared to be adhesive material from labels/stickers. All stands adjacent to these equipment as well as stands and frame-work for this equipment were also found with similar materials as the production equipment. I immediately notified Ms. (sanitation supervisor) of the violation of 9 CFR 416.4(b), and of establishment 01015-P's SPS requirements. This document serves as written notification that your failure to comply with regulatory requirements(s) could result in additional regulatory or administrative action.


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.
