In a six-page assessment of the conditions at the farm based on investigators’ visits in late September, the FDA said Jensen Farms recently had purchased used equipment that was corroded, dirty and hard to clean. The packing-facility floors also were constructed so they were hard to clean, so pools of water potentially harboring the bacteria formed close to the packing equipment.
