Citation: At approximately 0910 while walking through the breast deboning department I found the following noncompliance: A gap between the top of the double door leading to the outside and the wall where the seal has come away - approximately 1/2" wide by 4" length. Light from the outside is visable. This could serve as an entryway for vermin.
