Address: 1 River Rd, Juniata Cty, Mifflintown, PA 17059
Establishment No.: p1015
USDA Inspection Report: 17 May 2011
Citation: At approximately 0405 hours, while preoperational sanitation I observed the following facility deficiencies:[newline]In preop area # 5 item # 9- The incline conveyor belt had previous day/ days' production residue on the supports and telfon strips. It covered an area approximately 1/2" by 2'. No tag was applied as I remained in the area.[newline]In preop area # 7 item # 29- The silver tank that is under the spray cabinet had previous day's production residue floating in it. The sizes varied and was too numerous to count. No tag was applied as I remained in the area.[newline]I immediately notified Mr. (Sanitation Foreman) of the noncompliance. This is the direct violation of 9 CFR 416.4(b), as well as your own SSOP plan.
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.
