Critical Hot and cold holding N/A N/A N/A I observed a large stockpot of raw chicken on the floor and temperature of 65*f. I also found a pan of cooked meat sitting on counter at 62*f. Staff must not be leaving foods out for this long before heating/cooking. You need to train them to work in small batches due to limited stove space. Develop a written procedure and have copy for me on follow up inspection in 2 weeks.
Critical Ready-to-Eat Food, Date Markin N/A N/A N/A I found an opened milk not posted with use by date. I also observed staff going around marking dates after i arrived using post it note stickers. I want you to obtain date stickers that will adhere to containers and implement a permanent date marking system. I will be back in 2 weeks to verify this is being done.
Critical Reheating for Hot Holding N/A N/A N/A I observed a cheese sauce being reheated in a hot hold steam unit. Staff must be re-heating on stove to >165*f before stocking into steam units. Must train staff of this and be sure they are using thermometers to verify heating temps. Corrected by heating on stove.
Critical Package Integrity N/A N/A N/A I fond 3 dented cans of ketchup. Staff need to pull dented cans and put in a labelled area for return for credit. I will be back to see that you have a labelled area for cans in 2 weeks.
Critical Cooling N/A N/A N/A I observed a large container of cheese sause at 53*f in walk in cooler. Unsafe cooling procedures were used. You need to break this product down into shallow pans to cool through the danger zone in appropriate times. Item was discarded. I will be back to verify safe cooling methods are being used. Use the chart i left to begin to document cooling times.
Critical Backflow Prevention, Air Gap N/A N/A N/A The spray rinse arm is no longer air gapped at the dishwash sink area. You need a new spring to assure the spray nozzle sits at least an inch above the drain rim on the sinks. I will be back in 2 weeks to verify this has been done.
Critical Cleaning Procedure N/A N/A N/A Handwashing is not happening here due to the fact that all the handsinks had no paper towels stocked at them and two of them had no soap. Furthermore, sinks were blocked by sani buckets in the basin. The expe/server line handsink is broken and must be repaired within 10 days. Have all paper towel dispensers stocked and working properly and not jamming up. I will be back in 2 week to verify these items.
