Health Report - 02/12/2015 (2 critical incident(s))

(Critical) I found all of the ingredients and the finished product for the "broth bowls" at unsafe temperatures at the front prep area. Hard boiled eggs, chicken were found at 48*f. A bag of kale was left on a shelf at room temp and found at 58*f. The kale was discarded. Upon further investigation, it was determined that staff were making up too much product at one time, thus keeping the product out of cold holding for too long of time. Managers need to work with staff to assure they are working with small batches so foods do not rise much into the danger zone. Also, you need to put the foods into the walk in cooler until they are brought back down to 41*f or colder. Use of thermometer to take temps is crucial during the process. Foods out of temp were put into the freezer to rapidly cool back down, since they were out of temp for less than 2 hours. Corrected by manager control with proper food processes.

(Critical) No paper towels were available at the bagel prep handsink on the front line. Dispenser fell of the wall, but no one stocked a roll of paper towels at this location while a new dispenser was on order. Managers need to be actively in control of these things. Corrected by stocking a paper towel roll at this location.

The cleaning tools need to be organized and hung up and the mop sink area needs to be tidied up.

Plates were observed right next to the handink on the front line and exposed to contamination by splash. You need to keep foods and food contact items out of splash zones or put up a taller splash shield on the handsink.

(Critical) A can of oven cleaners was found on top of the dishmachine. Keep toxic items stored in safe place away from foods and food contact items. Corrected by storing on chemical rack in office.

(Critical) I observed ham at 62*f and gouda cheese at 53*f on the cold rail of the catering prep cooler. The cheese was sitting on top of a pan lid, not down in a pan. The ham was in a spot where there were several missing pans, thus allowing warm in into the cold well. Managers need to be holding staff accountable to set up equipment properly and be using them properly. Corrected by setting up properly and discarding out of temp foods.

(Critical) No soap was stocked in the mens restroom dispenser. Staff need to be checking often and keeping stocked. Corrected by stocking.

Water is leaking from the compressor into the walk in freezer, creating icicles. Have this serviced.

Health Report - 03/04/2014 (2 critical incident(s))

(Critical) Blenders used to make smoothies were not being cleaned and sanitized on a 4 hour maximum interval. Be sure the soup bag cutter is included with this. Train staff and managers need to assure being washed, rinsed and sanitized every 4 hours or less. Corrected through implementation

(Critical) The handsink in the bagel/dessert area was visibally dirty from staff using this sink for purposes other than handwashing. Handsinks are to be used solely for handwashing. Corrected by education.

Clean plates were found stored within the splash zone of the handsink on the front line. Store plates in an area where they won't be easily contaminated. Corrected.

Be sure your unwrapped foods that are stored in open cabinets on the line are recesses far enough under the counter to prevent contact with staff clothing/aprons brushing up against the food.

Wiping cloths were not submersed in the small pan of sanitizer at the espresso machine. Need to have a large enough vessel to get enough sanitizer to sumberge cloths.

Sanitizer solution was found weak in a few buckets and well past the expiration times on the buckets. Staff need to be changing out solutions on time.

The hinges on the reach in cooler at the espresso station need to be repaired/replaced so the door stays shut. I found the door ajar.

Mop not hung up after use and mop bucket not emptied. Also, the mop sink area is dirty. Staff need to be keeping this area clean.

Utensils at the specialty drink prep area were stored in sanitizer water. This is not approved.

Will be utilizing the last option.

You need to repair the leaks coming into the walk in freezer and in the 3 door prep cooler on the line.

I observed 3 in use wiping cloths sitting out on counters. Keep in use cloths in sanitizer solutions between uses to disinfect the cloth towels.

The interior of the dishtank needs to be thoroughly cleaned at least once a week.

Managers need to have hair restraints on when prepping food, as well.

Keep wiping cloths completely immersed in sanitizer. Staff are putting too many wiping cloths in some of the sanitizer buckets.

Staff are double panning items on the cold rails in the prep coolers. They are also placing cheese in plastic clamshell containers. Foods must be directly in pans and pans cannot be double panned or they will not hold product below 41*f. Corrected
