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: 31 Oct 2011

Code: 01D01
Violation:  416.2(h)(2)

Citation: At approximately 1150, after performing viscera post-mortem inspection on the first beef animal slaughtered, I proceeded to the hand wash sink on the kill floor and, after washing, I concluded there were no paper towels in the dispenser located above the sink. I then performed a directed SPS verification task.[newline] I verbally notified (kill floor employee) of this situation and he immediately loaded new paper towels into the dispenser. [newline] No regulatory control action was taken, as the non-compliance issue was corrected promptly, and no product adulteration was observed.[newline] I also could not link this non-compliance to any previous non-compliance.

Regulation:

416.2(h)(2) Lavatories with running hot and cold water, soap, and towels, must be placed in or near toilet and urinal rooms and at such other places in the establishment as necessary to ensure cleanliness of all persons handling any product.
