Address: 2609 U.S. Rt 22, Fredricksburg, PA 17026
Establishment No.: p493
USDA Inspection Report: 29 Sep 2011
Citation: At approximately 0420 hours while performing a scheduled 01B02 Preoperational Sanitation task, in the evisceration department, Having the Gizzard Pipes as one area of inspection I ask that they be taken apart to inspect the inside. When they were opened up the inside had feed and residue from previous days production. At this time I informed Mrs. that I would be applying USDA Rejected Tag # B39801571 on the pipes, and issuing a NR. At 0435 hours I was asked to reinspect the pipes. I inspected and removed my tag, releasing the area for production. The establishment is in violation of 9 CFR 416.3(a), and has been notified both orally and in writing of this noncompliance. Failure to meet regulatory requirements could result in further administrative action as described in 9 CRF part 500.
416.3(a) Equipment and utensils used for processing or otherwise handling edible product or ingredients must be of such material and construction to facilitate thorough cleaning and to ensure that their use will not cause the adulteration of product during processing, handling, or storage. Equipment and utensils must be maintained in sanitary condition so as not to adulterate product.
