Health Report - 03/10/2015 (3 critical incident(s))

(Critical) Chlorine test papers are not being used to measure for correct chlorine levels in the dishwasher. Staff need to be using strips everyday to check dishmachine and sanitizer buckets. I will be back in 2 weeks to verify you are using them.

(Critical) Both cream pitchers that are out for self service did not have the use by time marked on the pitchers, as required by your time as health control policy. Managers need to hold staff accountable to be doing this. I will be back in 2 weeks to verify this is being done.

(Critical) Repeat violation 2 times in a row. Complete the risk control plan and fax into me within 10 days. Once again, i observed the dishmachine not dispensing detectable sanitizer. You were instructed on your last inspection to have staff use test papers and verify that your dishmachine is dispensing 50-100ppm chlorine. Manager needs to assure staff are doing this. Do not use dishmachine to sanitize any dishes until repaired. I will be back in 2 weeks to verify unit is sanitizing properly.

The sanitizer bucket at the barista did not have any detectable chlorine in it. It must be changed out about every 2 hours to keep the chlorine at 50-100ppm. Train staff to change it out more often.

The front door needs a new door sweep to eliminate the gap at the threshold.

The door on the cooler at the barista pops open very easily when the other door is shut. This door needs to be adjusted so it stays shut.

(Critical) The dishmachine is not dispensing chlorine into the machine. Do not use until it is repaired and you confirm it is dispensing at 50-100ppm chlorine. Managers need to check the dishmachine every morning before using for the first time to assure sanitizing at 50-100ppm. I will be back 10/3/14 to verify it is working properly.

This facility does not have a certified food safety manager. You have until 12/15/14 to get someone that works at this store full time certified. Fax over copy of certificate by the due date.

You need to contract a pest company that can eliminate the flies from your facility. I will be back in one month to verify the flies are gone. Save me all reports from the pest company for my review on the follow up inspection.

The single door reach in cooler under the cash register is in need of repair. The door needs to be adjusted to eliminate the gap into the cooler.
