Dairy Farm and Milk Plant Inspection
(1)If, upon inspection of a dairy farm or milk plant by the Department, a violation of any item of sanitation as contained herein for the licensed grade then held is noted on two successive inspections made not less than three days apart, and notice has been given within six months of the second violation that further violation will be grounds for suspension, the license permitting use of the specified grade designation with milk or milk products may be suspended for a specific period of time which in no case shall exceed ten days.
(2)A copy of all inspection reports will be posted by the Department in a conspicuous place on an inside wall of the licensee’s farm or milk plant, as the case may be, and shall not be defaced or removed without approval of the Department.
(3)A producer, producer-distributor, or distributor found in violation of any requirement(s) shall be notified by inspection report or in writing and given a reasonable time to correct such violation(s) before a second inspection is made. The requirement of giving written notice shall be deemed to have been satisfied by the handing to the operator, or by posting of, an inspection report required by this section. After receipt of a notice of violation, but before the allotted time has elapsed, the producer, producer-distributor, or distributor shall have an opportunity to contact the chief of the inspection agency to question the items marked in violation or for requesting an extension of the time allowed for correction.
(4)Whenever a producer, producer-distributor, or distributor ceases to operate under a current license, such license privileges are deemed suspended unless again authorized by an approval inspection.
