Address: 154 West Main St, Fredricksburg, PA, 17026
Establishment No.: p1304

USDA Inspection Report: 14 Jul 2010

Code: 01B02
Violation: 416.13(c), 416.4(a), 416.4(b)

Citation: At approximately 2115 hrs., after the plants pre-operational sanitation and prior to the start of operations, I observed the following noncompliance's while performing the 01B02 procedure for pre-operational sanitation. In the cut-up department I observed chicken and fat particles on the wing, breast, leg and thigh conveyors and in the packing bins and on the tables and black grease on the leg conveyor. I also observed black grease build up on the guide bar above the wing cutters. I immediately rejected the department with U.S. tag #B39801316 and notified sanitation manager of the noncompliance's. After a review of the plants SSOP records for the cut-up department, all the conveyors were rejected for (CP) chicken pieces and (OS) for overspray. And the department was released for USDA inspection at 2100 hrs. All conveyors and packing bins were direct product contact surfaces. This document serves as a written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional enforcement action described in 9 CFR part 500.

Regulation:

416.13(c) Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s.

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.

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.
