This piece of beef still had a core temperature of 58 to 59f. Additionally, some small pieces were found to be at 48 to 49f. Corrected by discarding. Utilize several rapid cooling techniques (reduce the volume, place it on the top shelf in the airflow from the cooling unit, etc. ) to ensure this beef is cooled within the parameters identified in the food code.
(Critical) The sanitizer dispenser was not providing at least 200 ppm quat. The chemical contractor was on-site prior to the end of the inspection to make an adjustment

The chef indicated this unit could be positioned about 5°Feet to the left away from the heating element. If the new location is too inconvenient for staff a heat shield will need to be installed. Additionally, staff may need to utilize individual pan covers for these foods if the unit cannot hold 41f or below.

Corrected by the employee relocating the hash to a reach-in cooler
1) observed multiple uncovered foods in both of the walk in coolers in the back prep kitchen area. Please keep cold foods covered to protect them during storage. 2) observed the potential for misc.
