(Critical) No test kits were available in the facility to check the concentration of the quat solution for the wiping cloth bucket and for set up of the 3 comp sink. To correct, please obtain a supply of qt-40 test papers and test the concentration after each use of the sanitizing dispeser. ,

(Critical) No test kits were available in the facility to check the concentration of the quat solution for the wiping cloth bucket and the set up of the 3 compartment sink. Observed the wiping cloth bucket to be setup without checking sanitizing solution concentration. To correct, please obtain a supply of qt-40 test papers and test the concentration after each use of the sanitizer dispenser. ,

Observed the following areas in need of cleaning: the back of the counter behind equipment along the wall on the take out window side of the facility where debris and grease has built up and the receiving drain for the soda machine under the cabinet in the dining area which has a build up of slime mold.

The following areas are in need of cleaning now and more frequently in the future: the floor sink at the dish washing station; the top counter and the interior surfaces (including the drain pipes) of the dining room beverage station base cabinet; and under the lip of the toilets

Observed the handle of the dispensing scoops for the onion chips and one other frozen item to be resting in the food directly. Ensure your scoop handles are stored such that they do not touch the food

The sliding door on the trash dumpster was left open. Corrected by closing the door. Ensure the doors and lids stay closed to prevent pest entry

Health Report - 02/27/2014 (1 critical incident(s))

(Critical) Staff do not have a brush cleaning kit for the sani-serv shake machine. These units have many difficult to clean surfaces and tubes. Obtain a brush cleaning kit from the manufacturer for staff to use when cleaning this machine

The floor and walls beside and behind the deep fryer are in need of cleaning to eliminate excess fryer oil build-up. Clean these surfaces as needed. Ensure the exhaust hood drip pan is not leaking oil as well

The sliding door was found to be left open on the trash dumpster. Maintain this door closed to prevent the entry of pests. Birds were seen inside the dumpster today

Health Report - 09/09/2013 (0 critical incident(s))

1) excessive dust accumulation was noted behind and along side the drive through station ice machine and soda dispensing machine. Thoroughly clean these machine and wall surfaces as needed and on a much more regular basis to prevent this kind of accumulation. 2) two back kitchen floor drains need to be removed for thorough cleaning of the underside and the piping below: at the walk in cooler/freezer area and by the side delivery door below the pull handles for the exhaust hood fire suppression systems

1) the back-flow preventer for the drive through area beverage station/ice making machine (located behind the unit) is leaking. Repair/replace this back-flow preventer to eliminate the water leak. 2) the hand washing sink located next to the dish washing area drains slowly. Unclog the drain as needed

Observed several stacks of coffee filters under the front counter not stored in packaging. Provide a plastic bag or a plastic container to protect these filters

Health Report - 03/30/2012 (1 critical incident(s))

(Critical) 1) observed stuck-on oil residue on the plastic hot holding pans and insert trays for the hot holding unit for fish and chicken, etc. These items were sent to be washed and sanitized. 2) dining room and drive through beverage dispensing stations: again the soda diffusers and the surfaces they mount to on the machines have excessive accumulation on them. These items need to be cleaned every 24 hours. As soon as possible have an employee remove the spouts and diffusers for cleaning and ensure the clean in place mounting surfaces are washed, rinsed and sanitized. A tool, such as a small diameter bottle brush, will be needed to thoroughly scour the difficult to reach surfaces of the diffuser attachment locations.

Observed no paper towel in the following paper towel dispensers at hand washing sinks: men's bathroom, the drive through station and the back kitchen station by the utility sink. Corrected by providing paper towel

Observed the wiping cloth solution at the grill station near the deep fryers to be less than 150 ppm. Corrected by providing fresh sanitizer at 200 ppm

The following drain locations are in need of cleaning now and more frequently in the future to eliminate debris accumulation as well as possible fly breeding areas: the drain through the floor for the walk in cooler & freezer, the floor drain located near the mop sink and the difficult to access drain in the base cabinet for the lobby beverage station

Safely remove and clean the fan guards for the circulation system in the walk in cooler and freezer to remove the dust build-up

Health Report - 04/25/2011 (1 critical incident(s))

Staff need to use a small brush sized to fit the gap in the soda dispenser (+/- 1/4 inch) to thoroughly clean with hot soapy water, rinse with tap water, sanitize then air dry. A flash light will be needed to verify the thoroughness of the cleaning. These surfaces need daily cleaning and inspection.

Observed the hand washing sink faucet (next to the dish washing area) to have an intermittent malfunction whereby it does not dispense water. Trouble shoot the problem and repair/replace as necessary

Again observed the soda dispensing spouts, the diffusers and the mounting bases for the drive through and the dining room beverage dispenser machine to be over-due for cleaning. Obtain an extra set of these spouts & diffusers to switch out, and a small diameter bottle brush to fit in the recessed area on the mounting bases for these removable spout parts to thoroughly clean the area. These removable parts and the mounting bases need cleaning every 24 hours

Observed four iced tea, one gallon containers (empty) stored under the front counter. Please protect the interior of these containers by storing them in a bag. Corrected by placing these containers in a plastic bag

The waste water drain and the interior bottom of the base cabinet in the dining room for the beverage dispenser and the ice machine are in need of cleaning at this time to remove debris build-up, moisture and mold growth

Provide qt-40 test papers for measuring the sanitizer concentration accurately. The test papers currently available (two kits) are not useable. One of them had become wet and discolored, and the other was lacking a color comparison chart. Further, the yellow test paper kit doesn't have a color for 150 ppm concentration (the usage concentration for this chemical per the label directions).
