USDA Inspection Report: 24 Aug 2011

Code: 01C02
Violation: 416.2(d), 416.4(b), 416.4(d)

Citation: While performing the review and observation component of the operational SSOP task, the following noncompliance was noted. On inspection of cooler #1, the door seal was found to not have a proper seal, allowing airflow into the room. The inside of the door and the door frame had frost and ice along the top and sides. Several product racks and walls were covered in frost and ice. The ceiling was covered in frozen beaded condensation. I observed that several boxes of product were covered in severe frost and appeared to have freezer burn. Product was stacked tightly throughout the room which prevented inspection of the product and the room along the back wall. A box of retail product was noted on one of the product racks with wholesale product. There was no identification and separation of the retail product stored in the room. Bins of product that contained patties and poultry carcasses were without labels or other identification.[newline][newline]This is a noncompliance of 416.2(d), 416.4(d), 416.4(b), 305.2, and 317.1.


416.2(d) Ventilation. Ventilation adequate to control odors, vapors, and condensation to the extent necessary to prevent adulteration of product and the creation of insanitary conditions must be provided.

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.

416.4(d) Product must be protected from adulteration during processing, handling, storage, loading, and unloading at and during transportation from official establishments.
