Establishment No.: p1015
USDA Inspection Report: 9 Apr 2012
Citation: [newline] At approximately 1330 hours on April 9, 2012 while observing the operational conditions in Cooler # 1 with Dr. the following deficiency was noticed. The plastic construction barrier was not sufficiently sealing off the construction access in the wall between Cooler # 1 and the Chill Pack A- B blast room. The gap between the plastic barrier and the concrete floor was approximately two inches by eight inches in length. The incomplete closure was on the side nearest to the shipping dock. The Chill pack A-B blast side of the barrier appeared dusty. This is a violation of 416.4(d) and your SSOP for Cooler # 1. There was also some loose tape noticed on the twelve inch seal coated pipes near the spiral freezer which need addressed. I notified Mr. Second Processing Superintendent of the findings.
416.4(d) Product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, storage, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments.
