Health Report - 07/29/2009 (3 critical incident(s))

(Critical) I observed several cans that had dents on the seems of the cans. Staff must be pulling dented cans and placing in an area labelled for return of dented cans. Corrected by doing so.

(Critical) All product on the top rail in the cooler on the right side prep unit were at 49*f. Unit seems to be working properly and it appears that staff did not stock pans of food into this unit right after pulling product out of wic on speed racks. It was also observed that the prep person pulled quesadilla ingredients out of cooler and did not prep right away. Product was found at 59*f. It is crucial that staff do one thing at a time and not leave foods out of refrigeration except for very short periods of time. Managers must be supervising staff for safe work habits. Product was discarded and corrected through supervision.

(Critical) A pan of raw chicken was found stored directly next to a pan of sandwiches in the top drawer of the coolers on the main line. Raw meats need to be stored on bottom levels and never directly next to ready to eat foods. Corrected by moving chicken to bottom drawers.

Post signs reminding employees to wash hands in the restrooms.

Mops were left in mop buckets. Staff need to be hanging them up to aid in the drying of the mop heads.

The salad prep cooler at the expo/server area needs to be serviced. It is holding product at 44*f. Must be holding under 41*f. Service to be done today. Fax over copy of invoice from refrig. Technician.

Repeated violation 3 times in a row!!! why is am i still seeing this? staff are still using cloth towels under cutting boards and not th esupplied board stablizers. Pic's must be correcting staff behaviors.

Please work on cleaning your store in hard to reach places as you are attracting drain flies. Pay particular attention to the areas around the mop sink. There should be no standing water in that area and keep sink basin clean. Also, clean the floor drain crocks better. The floor in the keg cooler needs to be cleaned more often.
