Address: 220 N.Center St, Fredricksburg, PA 17026
Establishment No.: p533
USDA Inspection Report: 23 Mar 2011
Violation: 416.2(b)(1), 416.2(b)(2), 416.4(b)
Citation: At approximately 0645 hrs., after the plants pre-operational sanitation and prior to the start of operations I observed the following noncompliance's in the packing department while performing the 01B02 procedure for pre-operational sanitation. The black belt on the roller track leading to the CVP/Marination department had multiple pieces of chicken fat and particles on it, and an excessive amount of product residue build up on both sides of the frame. I immediately rejected the black belt with U.S. tag #B39133631 and notified of the noncompliance. I also notified of the following observations: holes in the west side of the wall along the roller track, moldy caulking around the wall and ceiling, and a gap along the ceiling above the roller track. After a review of the plants SSOP records for the packing department, no deficiencies were documented and the department was released for USDA inspection at 0632 hrs. 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.
