My facility was recently assigned a new USDA inspector. She told me today that she was directed by her supervisor to shut down a production facility for two days if any rodent or signs of rodent activity are present.
Is this an actual requirement? I do not see any USDA literature that backs up this statement.
For FSSC if there is any evidence of pests but evidence or sighting were documented in pest control program and corrective actions put in place there is no adverse consequence.
I am not sure if I am missing something here or if this inspector is trying to overexert authority.
All advise appreciated!
