Make sure ice in pan is always over the chicken to assure maintaining 41 degrees f or below

(Critical) Cleaner degreaser found on shelf with pans that are used for pasta prep. Reorganize this area so that chemicals and cleaners are stored separately from food contact surfaces. Corrected by relocating the pans so that they are not near the cleaners.

(Critical) Ladles and cutting boards with food debris found hanging on clean storage rack. It appears that the utensil are being returned to the clean storage rack after use. Discontinue this practice immediately. All utensils must be cleaned within four hours of use and may not be reused for dispensing during this time.

(Critical) Raw chicken found stored next to precooked turkey and above raw shrimp in the walk in cooler. Raw chicken must not be stored next to ready to eat foods nor above shrimp. Correct by reorganizing this section of the walk in cooler so that raw foods are properly stored with raw chicken on the bottom most shelf other raw foods above that including raw shrimp and ready to eat foods above the raw foods.

(Critical) Foods are being prepared from ambient air ingredients including salsa and batter. Salsa prepared day of inspection was temped at 47 - 50 degrees f. Product once mixed must be rapidly cooled to 41 degrees f within 4 hours and then maintained at 41 degrees f. In the case of the salsa the bagged product of base can be chilled in the walk in cooler the previous day so that the ingredients that make the product are already at 41 degrees f or if some of the ingredients stay at ambient air temperature than the final product must be chilled to 41 degrees f before placing in the prep unit or batter station.

(Critical) Numerous stainless and plastic food containers were found with food debris after dishwashing. Food contact surfaces must be properly cleaned. It is probable that this is due to two things. Lack of adquate pressure from the sprayer causing improper pre wash, and possible that the dishmachine has inadequate pressure to clean the containers. Replace/repair spray rinse device by the dishmachine to provide proper pressure for proper pre wash of all utensils/containers/food contact surfaces and repair dishmachine as needed to proper remove remaining food debris during wash cycle of dishmachine. Until both of these issues are resolved, it is imperative to check all food contact surfaces for proper cleanliness after they are removed from the dishmachine prior to stacking on the clean utensil shelf.

One of the handsinks in the employee restroom was providing hot water that was less than 100 degrees f. Correct by providing enough hot water to temper water to proper temperature of at least 100 degrees f. Hot water was adjusted to provide proper temp water at time of inspection
