(Critical) The upright chicken cooler holding product at 47*f. The pastry cooler holding product at 45*f. Walk in cooler found holding product at 45f. Foods must be held at 41*f or less. Staff temps all showed 38* when taken this morning. The ambient air thermometers were found not accurate. Also, staff need to be taking temps with an accurate metal stemmed thermometer of foods within the coolers. I want you to take temps at least 2 times a day to assure coolers are holding 41*f or less. Temporary correction is the owner brought over his reefer truck to store product from the above coolers in until tech can get out to repair these units. Put pans of water in all 3 of these coolers and take temps of the water after the units have been repaired. If the water temps are 40*f or below, then you can store product back in these coolers. I will be back in 2 weeks to verify units are holding product at 41*f or less.

Corrected by doing the above.
