This incident (12602) does not have any more information on it
(Critical) No log chart is available indicating the discard times of the potentially hazardous foods on the buffet that cannot maintain 135f and above. The staff indicated they stopped logging this information since the buffet service is limited to the following hours: 11am to 3pm and then again from 5pm to 8 pm, and since the information was always the same on the charts.
(Critical) The five gallon container for the dish washing machine sanitizer was empty. No chlorine residual was provided in the rinse water. The owner indicated more chlorine is on order and should come in by the end of the week. A call was placed to the dish washing machine maintenance company and they were informed of the current situation. As a temporary solution, bleach from two other partial one gallon bottles were emptied into the 5 gallon bucket and the system was primed. Chlorine at 75-100 ppm was provided
(Critical) Observed a kitchen cook not wash his hands after cracking a large quantity of eggs, and a server not wash her hands between bussing dirty dishes and providing a drink for a customer or bringing out new food for the buffet. Both employees were reminded to wash their hands after they become contaminated. Later in the inspection observed the same server quickly rinse her hands at the hand washing sink. Ensure soap is used with physical scrubbing for 20 seconds to help remove pathogens prior to rinsing and drying hands.
(Critical) Observed a large cardboard box/tray that was half full of bags of green grapes that were extensively moldy. Corrected by discarding these grapes
(Critical) Observed the following items to be in unclean: the dispensing spout for the vanilla soft serve ice cream, the interior of the ice machine and ice bin, the soda system dispensing nozzles and diffusers, and two metal 1/2 pans used for the buffet. The ice cream machine and the metal 1/2 pans were cleaned. Ensure the other items are cleaned and sanitized as soon as possible
(Critical) Observed sliced tomatoes on the cold buffet line at 52f. These tomatoes were discarded. The only potentially hazardous foods that may be stored on this cold buffet line are your cooked shrimp in ice. Observed several hot buffet foods to be at less than 135f: fried fish in a brown sauce (101f), peppered chicken (116f) and pork dumpling (123f).
Observed the drain line for the dining room server side stand to be clogged. Temporarily resolved by using a wire to unclog the drain. Additional snaking or chemicals will be needed to entirely eliminate the clog
Observed multiple wet wiping cloths scattered about the kitchen stored on counter tops. This practice will allow the growth of bacteria. Also observed the pail of sanitizer solution in the dining room to be too weak. In the future, ensure staff store your wet wiping cloths in a solution of sanitizer at the proper strength
Observed pails of sauce stored on the kitchen floor and a bag of carrots stored on the walk in cooler floor. Elevate all of your foods at least 6" off of the floor to protect them
No paper towel was provided at the cook line hand washing sink nor at the dispenser by the ice machine. Corrected by providing paper towel

Cheese stuffed mushroom caps 96f, teriyaki chicken 105 to 116f, sweet & sour chicken 124f, steamed buns 77 to 105f, tofu with vegetables 110f, chicken wings 116f. These foods were sent back to be reheated. The facility opens at 11:30 am. It appears the steam tables are not turned on early enough to be at proper hot holding temperature when the foods are placed in the buffet line. Ensure the steam table is turned on as soon as staff arrive and that it is hot when foods are placed into the unit.
(Critical) Observed a buffet line entree that was just made in the kitchen. The food contained thin sliced chicken breast meat. A couple of the pieces were folded in half and did not appear fully cooked. Upon further inspection, once the chicken was opened up it was still pink in color and not firm in texture. This food had a temperature of 126f. Corrected by returning the food to the kitchen for thorough cooking to 165f.

The clip board with this information was hanging on a back wall and the last entry was june 15th. Later, a new page appeared on the clip board indicating information from the day prior. The ability for your facility to utilize the time as a public health control policy is in jeopardy. I will discuss this matter with my supervisor and inform you of the decision once it has been made
