Citation: On Wednesday, April 04, 2012 at approximately 0600 hours, while was walking through the loading docks, IPP observed the following noncompliance: IPP observed dock door #2 open with a truck backed into it. This same door was observed open on Monday and Tuesday of this week. The truck does not form a tight fit to the door, therefore allowing possible rodent entry into the establishment. Also noted on both Monday and Tuesday as well as today, is approximately a 3 inch gap in the bottom left side of dock door #4. Further review of the plants pest control reports revealed the following: on 2-28-2012 the pest control technician documented  that door gap/damage noted that allows pest access on bottom left side of overhead door 4 in shipping/receiving. The report dated 2-28-2012 was signed by plant employee The pest control dated 3-27-2012 signed by plant employee the pest control technician again noted  that door gap/damage noted that allows pest access on bottom left side of overhead door 4 in shipping/receiving.
