Beantown Roasters, Inc., 3107 N. Deer Run Road, Suite 20, 90 points. Doors were ajar, leaving the building vulnerable to rodent or insect entry. Food from an approved source wasn’t labeled as required. During transportation, food was vulnerable to contamination due to inadequate packaging or an inadequate vehicle. Food residue wasn’t being cleaned off of the containers during process flow. Floors and food-contact surfaces of equipment/utensils weren’t clean. On a follow-up inspection, the business scored 77 points. Food-grade bins for coffee process flow weren’t sanitized. The food-grade bins containing food and product had been dragged across the dirty floor. The receiving doors were again found to be open. Poisonous or toxic material was being improperly stored. Propellant and other chemicals weren’t being stored in an appropriate location that’s both secure and outside of the processing area. The chemicals, which also weren’t graded for use in a food production facility, were sitting on top of food processing equipment. The inspector noted food was exposed to contamination because of the use of unsafe equipment lubricants and propellants. Facilities for manual dish washing weren’t properly designed, constructed, maintained, installed, located or operated. A sanitization area wasn’t set up for cleaning the bins that are used to transport coffee. The floor wasn’t clean, and it needed to be repaired in some places. The office carpeting was coated in coffee debris, which led to the reintroduction of contaminants into the food processing area due to the lack of food pads or other means of reducing debris from footwear. Floor junctures weren’t properly constructed. Coving in the food processing area was missing. The walls and ceilings weren’t light-colored, smooth, non-absorbent or easily cleanable. Unnecessary objects were being stored on site. Training in food processing was recommended to ensure the facility’s safe operation.
