(Critical) I observed turkey sausage gravy, gravy and pasta sauce that was cooked off this morning and put in too thick of pans and into the delfield 2 door upright cooler and covered.

Health Report - 07/23/2013 (5 critical incident(s))

(Critical) Found cream cheese at 45*f in the catering upright cooler. The condensor on the cooler is freezing up. You need to have this unit repaired and be confirming it holds 45*f or colder. Cream cheese was moved into the walk in cooler. I will be back to confirm this unit is holding 41*f or colder in a month. Begin taking temps for this cooler on a daily basis.

(Critical) A case of chafer fuel was found stored over serving bowls in the catering area. Toxic items need to be stored in safe locations away from foods and food contact items. Corrected by moving to safe location. Also, cleaning product was found over waters on a pallet of product from recent delivery. You need to be sure your suppliers are keeping toxic items seperated from foods and food contact items upon recieving. Corrected by talking to supplier.

(Critical) The handsink where the clean kitchenware comes out of the dishwasher was obstructed by a plate cart. Be sure handsinks are always accessible. Corrected by moving plate cart.

(Critical) Chicken found on the carving station at 124*f after it was up there for ~15 minutes. Your carving station is not holding foods at 135*f or hotter. Plans are to use time as health control for items served on the carving station. You need to have a written policy specifying which foods will be put on time control and the hours this food will be on the carving station. Include both lunch and dinner. Also, you will need to mark the times foods will be on the carving station at that location and the times any foods left on the station at closing of lunch and dinner will be discarded. Corrected by implementing time control

(Critical) I observed the presense of small flies in your kitchen. You need to have a licensed pest company out to set you up on a plan to eliminate them from your kitchen. I will be back in 30 days to re-inspect your facility for the absence of these flies.

Please clean the top of the dishmachine and the hood area at the cafe grill more frequently.

Be sure staff in hospital kitchen clean the interior of microwaves often. Don't forget the interior top portion.

(Critical) I found a bag of cubed turkey and red peppers left out on a mobile cart and at 65*f. These items must be held at 41*f or less.

(Critical) You need to have a consistent date marking system in place here. Some folks are using 8 days, some 7 and others less than 7. Also, opened gallons of milk had no dates marked on them. I would like to see a prep/open date and then add 6 days to that date and post the out date. Corrected by doing such while present.
