(Critical) Move the insect trap away from food prep areas. Also, do not use fly swatters in your store.

(Critical) I found 3 spray bottles of cleaners stored unsafely. On was on the stand next to the rice cooker with plates underneath it, one was on a table over clean silverware, and one stored on shelf next to clean pots/pans. Staff need to have desiganated safe locations for chemicals and be held accountable for keeping them there. I will be back in 2 weeks to verify you have implemented a system. Moved to temporary safe location while present.

(Critical) There is not a uniform date marking system in your store. All staff must be using the same system. Plan is to use day stickers, using the day of prep/open as the pre marked day and writing the use by date, which is 6 days added to the day of prep/open. All staff must be following this same system. . . Including bar staff. I will be back to verify this system in 2 weeks. Items found not date marked were 3 gallons of milk, whipped creams, all foods in the japanese prep cooler on the sushi line, heavy cream at the bar. Items were discarded.

(Critical) I observed a carton of eggs in the front glass upright cooler above ready to eat foods. Eggs need to be stored on botton shelves and away from any ready to eat foods. Corrected by doing such.

(Critical) The cold portion of the buffet was found not holding temp. Observed hard boiled egg at 49*f and cut watermelon at 48*f. This unit must hold product at 41*f or less at all times. Unit is not to be used. Owner is to put water in all pans and leave on all night and call me with temps of the water in the morning. Out of temp foods were discarded. Will use time for today only on buffet bar. I will be back to re-inspect this within 10 days.

(Critical) I found several chemical spray bottles that were mislabelled. Staff need to be sure that the contents of spray bottles match the pre-labelled content name. Corrected by doing such.
