Establishment No.: p493
USDA Inspection Report: 31 Aug 2011
Citation: On August 31st, 2011 while walking through the Evisceration department at 0520 hrs. I entered the small storage room along the east wall on the north end of the evisceration department and found fat, feathers, intestines, trash, torn boxes, shackles,etc. inside the storage room. I immediately applied a US Rejected tag (# B39133588) onto the door. I notified Mr. (Maintenance Manager) of my findings. A noncompliance report was issued in March 2011 for this same area, and USDA was informed that this area would be kept clean and locked by the maintenance personnel working in the evisceration department. Establishment management has received oral & written notification regarding this noncompliance. Failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in additional enforcement actions as described in 9 CFR 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.
