Kamery's Wholesale Meats, Inc.
Address: 320 E. Riverside Dr, Olean, NY 14760
Establishment No.: m4470
USDA Inspection Reports: 1 Mar 2011
Citation: At approximately 0730 hours while conducting Sanitation Performance Standards (SPS) verification activities the following noncompliance was observed .When entering the offal cooler I noted the weather stripping around cooler door cracked and breaking away from frame and door with several pieces of stripping missing I also further checked the carcass meat cooler and freezer door and found the same conditions of weather stripping breaking away from around the frames of cooler doors being maintained I notified of the structural noncompliance and the need of maintaining these areas in good repair and sound construction as not to create the possibility of insanitary conditions due to condensation. I was informed that corrective will begin taking place to repair all weather stripping around all cooler doors in the establishment. A review of noncompliance records documented the previous 3 months did not reveal any with the same root cause.
