USDA Inspection Report: 21 Dec 2011
Violation: 416.1, 416.2(e)(2), 416.2(e)(3), 416.2(e)(4), 416.2(f)
Citation: At approximately 2000 hours I was leaving the building and noticed a sufficient amount of water coming out from the bottom of the door at the offal room; also water was coming out from under two garage doors; water with chicken particles in the water. Upon looking in the offal room I found four to five inches of water throughout the entire room. It appears that two different pipes have water pouring out of them. I immediately notified the Lead in charge of the situation. Maintenance is now taking corrective actions of the situation. Continued failure to meet the regulatory requirements can lead to enforcement actions as described in 9 CFR part 500.4 Past Similar NRs - Previous Ineffective Plant Actions: A continued backup in sewer and water pipes. No adequate floor drainage in areas where floors are subject to flooding-type cleaning. NR: 89-2011 dated 11/8/2011; NR: 86-2011 dated 10/20/2011
416.1 Each official establishment must be operated and maintained in a manner sufficient to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and to ensure that product is not adulterated.
416.2(e)(2) Properly convey sewage and liquid disposable waste from the establishment;
416.2(e)(3) Prevent adulteration of product, water supplies, equipment, and utensils and prevent the creation of insanitary conditions throughout the establishment;
416.2(e)(4) Provide adequate floor drainage in all areas where floors are subject to flooding-type cleaning or where normal operations release or discharge water or other liquid waste on the floor;
416.2(f) Sewage disposal. Sewage must be disposed into a sewage system separate from all other drainage lines or disposed of through other means sufficient to prevent backup of sewage into areas where product is processed, handled, or stored. When the sewage disposal system is a private system requiring approval by a State or local health authority, the establishment must furnish FSIS with the letter of approval from that authority upon request.
