Pic discarded these foods at time of inspection. Inconsistent date marking found in reach in coolers in kitchen area. Consistent date marking is needed to provide adequate information to food employees for determining when a food is safe or needs to be discarded. Implement a uniform date marking system.

(Critical) Dishwashing machines in kitchen dishwashing area and in upstairs dishwashing area measuring low or no chlorine sanitizer strength. Sanitizer strength needs to be between 50 to 100 ppm to adequately sanitize dishes and utensils. Pic corrected by calling repair company.

Health Report - 12/19/2013 (3 critical incident(s))

(Critical) The dishmachine was recently modified to use chlorine as a back up for sanitizer in case the booster heater did not reach proper temperature for hot water sanitization. In doing this when the dishmachine reached a temperature of approximately 170 degrees f it was inadequate to sanitize with hot water and too hot to continuously supply proper concentration of chlorine. It would sanitize at proper concentration intermitently as the free available chlorine would evaporate prior to hitting the plate surfac sometimes. Repair by providing 120 degrees f water during rinse cycle to allow proper concentration of sanitizer. Corrected at time of inspection by gfs. Proper temperature for low temp sanitize 120 degrees f and chlorine sanitizer at 50 ppm consistently.

In addition the warmer must be turned on enough in advance to maintain a minimum of 135 degrees f. This appears to not have been reheated to proper temperature prior to placing into the steamer. Corrected by reheating to 165 degrees f at time of inspection
