Address: 220 N.Center St, Fredricksburg, PA 17026
Establishment No.: p533
USDA Inspection Report: 25 Feb 2011
Violation: 416.13(c), 416.4(a), 416.4(b)
Citation: At approximately 0520 hrs., after the plants pre-operational sanitation inspection and prior to the start of operations, I observed the following noncompliance's while performing the 01B02 procedure for pre-operational sanitation. In the chiller department I observed pieces of fat, blood and overspray of multiple chicken particles on the upper bird conveyor. I immediately rejected the upper bird conveyor with U.S. tag #B39801880 and notified of the noncompliance. This unit was a direct product contact surface. After a review of the SSOP records for the chiller department the upper bird conveyor was documented as acceptable and the department was released for USDA inspection at 0450 hrs. While continuing my inspection in the evisceration department I observed pieces of fat various sizes on the wall behind the reprocessing area and on the box track in the packing department. I immediately notified the sanitation supervisor of my observations. 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.
