||Preventing Contamination from
||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.

||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.
