Hain Pure Protein Corporation
Address: 220 N.Center St, Fredricksburg, PA 17026
Establishment No.: p533
USDA Inspection Report: 5 Jan 2011
Violation: 416.2(b)(1), 416.4(b)
Citation: At approximately 0720 hrs. I observed the following conditions in the plant. In the evisceration department I observed a rusty heater condensate pipe above the salvage area located at the north end of the department. I immediately rejected the heater unit with U.S. tag #B39133628 and notified 1st Processing Manager of the noncompliance. Also in the CVP/Marination room I observed two leaks which had plastic covering on a light and a second location on a white pipe between the product track and the ice auger. I notified QA Manager of the leaks and also informed him that though the plant had placed plastic up for a corrective action a second leak has now occurred and preventive measures need to be implemented. 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.
