Putting Glass Walls on Pennsylvania Slaughterhouses So We Can See Behind Closed Doors
B.C. Natural Chicken

Address: 2609 U.S. Rt 22, Fredricksburg, PA 17026
Establishment No.: p493

USDA Inspection Report: 1 Nov 2011

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

Citation: At approximately 0445 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 thigh deboning department I observed pieces of chicken meat and fat inside the conveyor and grease residue on the top of the conveyor. I immediately rejected the thigh conveyor with U.S. tag # B39800911 and notified of the noncompliance. After a review of the plants SSOP records for pre-operational sanitation, the thigh conveyor was documented as rejected for similar deficiencies. The thigh conveyor was documented as recleaned and sanitized and released for USDA inspection at 0422 hrs. This was a direct product contact surface. 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.


416.13(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.
