Putting Glass Walls on Delaware Slaughterhouses So We Can See Behind Closed Doors
Perdue Farms, Delaware

Address: 20621 Savannah Rd, Georgetown, DE 19947
Establishment No.: P2178

USDA Inspection Report: 24 Jan 2012

Code: 01B02
Violation: 416.13(c)

Citation: At approximately 0454 hrs while performing pre-op sanitation in the chiller/grading dept. I observed the following noncompliance. The drip conveyor and metal pan had several pieces of fat and meat on them which are food contact surfaces. I notified Mr. /sanitation shift leader, the aforementioned conditions. I initiated regulatory control actions by rejecting the conveyor and applying a US Reject tag #B34336453. I observed as management implemented corrective actions by scrubbing with a soap pad, water rinse, and sanitized the conveyor and pan. After sanitary conditions were restored I reinspected the conveyor and pan, found them acceptable, and removed the tag at 0606 hrs. The establishment failed to meet regulatory requirements 416.13(c), 416.4, and 416.1 which states: 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.


416.13(c) Each official establishment shall monitor daily the implementation of the procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s.
