(Critical) There is a significant population of small flies in your facility. This has been an ongoing issue in your store in the summer months. You need to have a licensed pest operator out at least once a week for the next 4 weeks to determine what is causing the flies to be in your store, write you up a list of things needed to keep them from your store and eliminate the existing population. Save the work orders they give you for my review. I will be back in 1 month to see that the flies are gone from your facility.
(Critical) The upper bar dishwasher was not sanitizing. Upon further investigation, the tube wand was pulled up so it was above the sanitizer level in the jug. Have this line extended to the wand sits at the bottom of the jug. Corrected by getting the wand part way down and confirming it was drawing sanitizer.
(Critical) The new upright cooler on the line was found holding product at 47-51*f from the 2nd shelf on down. The top shelf was found holding at 38*f. Product on top shelf was blocking air flow to the remainder of the unit. Staff cannot impede air flow. Also, managers need to be temping foods on all levels of coolers to catch this kind of thing. After re-arranging the cooler, ambient temps on bottom were 40*f. Corrected.
(Critical) The handsink by the mop sink was obstructed by the mop bucket being stored in front of it. Handsinks cannot be blocked off. Store mop bucket by chems under dishmachine. Corrected by doing such.
(Critical) This facility did not purchase a tapered, thin tipped thermometer as required under new food code. Obtain at least one within 10 days. I will be back to verify you have one in 3 weeks.
(Critical) Numerous drain flies observed in the mop sink vicinity. You need to have a licensed pest company out to get rid of them. See additional violations that need to be addressed to keep flies out of your store. I will be back in 3 weeks to verify there are no flies and you have corrected the things that are causing them.
(Critical) I observed improper cooling of chicken wings. Staff pulled wings out of cooler without temping them before panning them up. Wings were found at 65*f. Must be 41*f or below before panning them up. Staff doing this task also did not know what temp wings needed to be at. Properly train staff. Corrected by putting wings back on sheet tray and putting back in walk in cooler.

(Critical) Repeat violation 3 out of 5 inspections. Administrative conference required. 3 coolers on the line were found holding foods above 41*f. The expo cooler was found holding foods at 45*-48*f in the reach in box. The far top right drawer cooler under the grill was found holding foods from 45-58*f and the standup cooler was found holding foods from 44-51*f. Once again, the kitchen was excessively hot, and the coolers are not designed to hold temp in temps and humidities that high. You are going to need to address ways to cool your kitchen down in the office conference. Bring in a detailed plan of action. Each summer, we have the same issues. All foods were tossed and the above units are not to be used until repaired and re-inspected by me.
I observed drain fly problems at the east server station and at the sticks bar. You need to have a pest company focus on these areas and determine causes and remedies for this fly problem in those areas. Safe copies of reciepts for me on follow up to review.
