Putting Glass Walls on New York's Slaughterhouses So We Can See Behind Closed Doors
Owasco Meat Co., Inc.

Address: 61 Oak Hill Rd, Moravia, NY 13118
Establishment No.: m4532

USDA Inspection Report: 26 Sep 2011

Code: 01B02
Violation:  416.13(a), 416.13(c)

Citation: At approximately 0710 while conducting a scheduled, routine, review and observation pre-op inspection task, I noticed 3 dead immature flies on the inspection pan of the offal cart. I then conducted a directed PRE-OP record review to determine if the plant discovered the same deficiency during it's monitoring procedures, and discovered it had not. I notified of the non-compliance and the pan was immediately cleaned and sanitized, therefore no regulatory control action was taken. No product was affected as the slaughter operation had not started.


416.13(a) Each official establishment shall conduct the pre-operational procedures in the Sanitation SOP’s before the start of operations.

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