Health Report - 03/10/2015 (1 critical incident(s))

(Critical) I observed the sliced tomatoes in 3 different prep coolers at 48-50*f. Cut tomatoes need to be held at 41*f or less. It was determined that these tomatoes were cut this morning and not quickly cooled back down in the walk in cooler/freezer to 41*f or less. Staff were instructed to take temps of prepped foods to assure they are down to 41*f before stocking on the line. Managers need to assure this is happening. Corrected by placing out of temp tomatoes into walk in freezer to cool.

Please be sure to clean the cabinet where the garbage bin is in the dining area. Also, clean better around the dishwasher and under the racks in the walk in freezer. Floors need to be kept dry of standing water, esp around the ice machine.

Repeat violation 2 times in a row. 2 mops were found left in the mop bucket. Coach staff to hang up mops after using.

You need to store the bread bowls recessed further under the counter to protect from contamination. You also need to store the apples in a protected area behind the line.
