USDA Inspection Report: 20 Dec 2010
Violation: 416.2(b)(2), 416.2(b)(3), 416.4(b)
Citation: While the EIAO performed an FSA (Food Safety Assessment) at Est. 4253, the following noncompliances were found. Small gaps were observed around the top of the outside door in the slaughter floor area. The gap is approximately one inch wide and three inches long; the gap is located around the top edges. Upon examining the inedible area and the rooms in the rest of the facility, no rodent droppings or other evidence of rodents or pest in the facility were observed. However, this is noncompliant with 9 CFR 416.2(b)(3). Flaking and peeling paint was observed on the ceiling and pipes directly above the mixer/grinder equipment, which is located in the raw meat processing area. This is noncompliant with 9 CFR 416.2(b)(2) and 416.4(b).
416.2(b)(2) Walls, floors, and ceilings within establishments must be built of durable materials impervious to moisture and be cleaned and sanitized as necessary to prevent adulteration of product or the creation of insanitary conditions.
416.2(b)(3) Walls, floors, ceilings, doors, windows, and other outside openings must be constructed and maintained to prevent the entrance of vermin, such as flies, rats, and mice.
416.4(b) Non-food-contact surfaces of facilities, equipment, and utensils used in the operation of the establishment must be cleaned and sanitized as frequently as necessary to prevent the creation of insanitary conditions and the adulteration of product.
