Critical Preventing Contamination from Ready-to-eat food(s) prep area Handled with bare hands I observed prep cooks placing food items on customer trays with their bare hands. As discussed at the time of inspection, bare hand contact is never allowed, at any time with ready to eat food. Bare hand contact is a prime way to transfer harmful bacteria to the food. This can lead to food borne illness. Corrected at the time of inspection. The manager has spoken to the staff.
Normal In-Use Utensils/Between-Storag Dispensing utensil(s) prep area knife storage rack Improperly stored Some in use knives, are being stored behind the knife rack, on the prep line. As discussed, this is not a sanitary storage location. This practice must be discontinued.
Normal Cutting surfaces Cutting surface(s) prep area storage shelves With deep cuts/grooves This cutting board is being used as a storage shelf. Even so, it can not be properly cleaned, because it is so worn. Replace it.
