Putting Glass Walls on Pennsylvania Slaughterhouses So We Can See Behind Closed Doors
Farmer’s Pride Inc.

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

USDA Inspection Report: 10 Apr 2011

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.4(b)

Citation: At approximately 1845 hrs., after the plants pre-operational sanitation and prior to the start of operations, I observed the following noncompliance while performing the 01B02 procedure for pre-operational sanitation. In the live/receiving area I observed an excessive amount of feathers, build up, and fecal material in the SIA gas tunnel. I immediately notified the sanitation manager of the noncompliance and rejected the SIA gas tunnel with U.S. tag # B39801272. I also observed in the area soda cups on top of the equipment, debris and white glove liners along the wall and wielding rods on the ledge where the shackles go through. After a review of the SSOP records for the live/receiving area the SIA gas tunnel and area was documented as acceptable and the department was released at 1830 hrs. for USDA inspection. 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.


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.
