Violation:  416.2(b)(3), 416.4(b)

Citation: On this date at 1230 hours Plant Manager was notified that the sliding door in the inedible room that opens to the outside has a large hole in the bottom left area and does not close completely at the floor junction that can allow the entrance of pests into the facility. This does not comply with 9CFR 416.2(b)(3). Also observed in the room adjacent to the live staging area in the large duck slaughter department that the area between the unloading ramp had debris, used gloves, and coffee cups discarded on the floor in the area. To the right of the outside entrance door there was a buildup of old wood construction materials, about 3 feet in length in the buffer zone area to the right of the door. This does not comply with 416.4(b) and 416.2(b)(3)


416.2(b)(3) Walls, floors, ceilings, doors, windows, and other outside openings must be constructed and maintained to prevent the entrance of vermin, such as flies, rats, and mice.

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.
