Health Report - 05/14/2014 (5 critical incident(s))

(Critical) The following food contact surfaces were observed to be rough and/or un-cleanable: 1) one of the two salad hopper inserts (the one currently in use) for the salad dispenser was observed to have a hole melted in the back wall. Replace this hopper with a new one (do not repair). 2) lids for the two kitchen blenders on the back storage shelf were observed to be un-cleanable. Replace these blenders. 3) the interior, upper front corners of the large ice bin have a sealant patch that is coming detached. Remove, clean and repair with a food grade sealant to provide a smooth and easily cleanable surface. 4) the interior chute surfaces for the ruby brand juicer are pitted from acidic foods over time. Purchase a new head for this machine so the surface is smooth and easily cleanable. ,

(Critical) 1) your chemical contractor used an unapproved hose to supply water from the potable water supply to a chemical dispenser. Provide a potable water hose (nsf std-51 or std-61). 2) your chemical contractor installed an unapproved black hose on the mop sink faucet to the chemical dispenser in the mop closet. Install a bleed-off/wasting tee between the mop faucet and the black rubber hose as a correction. ,

(Critical) The wall mounted salad cooler/dispenser was only maintaining the salad mix at 52f. Corrected by discarding this salad. The back-up salad mix was placed in the bottom portion of the salad prep cooler

(Critical) The following food contact surfaces were observed to be unclean: the back-up lettuce hopper, interior surfaces of the ice machine and ice bin, two kitchen blenders, two stainless steel shakers at the bar. All items except the ice machine were cleaned and sanitized during the inspection. ,

(Critical) The ice cream dipping well unit is being used inside a small sink basin at the bar. This sink drain line does not terminate with an air gap. The owner indicated he will install the dipper well on the adjacent wall with a drain line air gap provided above the flood rim of the sink basin. A new water supply to the dipper well will be installed and secured to provide an air gap above the flood rim of the dipping well. ,

The mop rack just pulled out of the wall. Repair/replace the mop hanger so wet mops are hung over the mop sink basin

The floor under/behind the beverage station is over-due for cleaning

Someone has fashioned a splash guard (made from a plastic jug) at the discharge of multiple drain pipes at the dish washing area. This splash guard has effectively eliminated the required air gap for the food prep sink drain line. Remove this splash guard from at least the food prep sink drain line

Bread is being placed in large closable bags that are being re-used. These bags are for one use only. Begin using new bags each time or provide a multi-use container that is cleanable

1) the drain for the older deep fryer is leaking oil. Repair the shut-off valve or other component that is allowing oil to leak out of this unit. 2) the door gaskets on the salad prep cooler are torn, and old and brittle. Replace these gaskets. 3) salad prep cooler: the bottom interior of the cooler has condensation accumulated in it. Have this unit worked on as needed so the condensation is routed to the evaporator pan/drain line or unclog the drain line as needed. 4) the wall mounted salad cooler/dispenser is not maintaining the product at 41f or below. Repair/adjust the unit as needed to maintain lettuce at 41f or below. The kitchen manager indicated a contractor is already scheduled to perform preventative maintenance on equipment tomorrow
