Health Report - 09/09/2010 (2 critical incident(s))

(Critical) I observed 2 cans of raid in your store. You are not approved to be using non-commercial insecticides in your licensed facility. Only use commercial insecticides. Corrected by discarding.

(Critical) I observed slime mold growing on the interior of the ice machine. You need to be cleaning and sanitizing this unit on a monthly basis to prevent this bacteria from growing. I will be back in 2 weeks to verify it has been cleaned. Remove all ice before cleaning.

Your kitchen is not being kept clean enough. The following areas are observed dirty: the floors under all equipment, particularly the cooking equipment, the cooking equipment, shelves under prep tables, the walls and floors in the walk in cooler have mold growing on them (remove moldy beverage bottles). Also, clean the exhaust filters more often. I am going to come back in 2 weeks to verify that all of the above has been thoroughly cleaned.

By the correction date, have the condensation leak in the 2 door upright cooler repaired. There can be no water leaking into the interior of this unit.

Do not keep any of your doors to the outside propped open as it lets in insects!!!

You need to replace all of the damaged and loose tiles under the cooking equipment by your next routine inspection.
