Violation Type Violation Category Violation Items Violation Locations Violation Problems Violation Comments
Critical Common Name N/A N/A N/A I observed 4 unlabeled spray bottles in the basement storage area. Staff need to be labeling bottles with the common name of contents. Corrected by labeling.
Critical Food Temperature Measuring Dev N/A N/A N/A No metal stemmed tapered tip thermometer on site. You need to purchase at least one of these and be using them on a regular basis. I will be back in 2 weeks to verify you have one!
Critical Cooling Methods N/A N/A N/A I found 2 unsafe cooling methods. One was seared off chicken breasts were cooling in an upright cooler. Hot foods must be cooled in a walk in cooler. The 2nd was a pan of potato/onion pie was wrapped while still cooling. When cooling, do not cover foods to be cooled to expedite the cooling. Please correct these habits in your staff. Corrected by doing the above.
Critical Potentially Hazardous Food (Ti N/A N/A N/A The upright chicken cooler holding product at 47*f. The pastry cooler holding product at 45*f. Walk in cooler found holding product at 45f. Foods must be held at 41*f or less. Staff temps all showed 38* when taken this morning. The ambient air thermometers were found not accurate. Also, staff need to be taking temps with an accurate metal stemmed thermometer of foods within the coolers. I want you to take temps at least 2 times a day to assure coolers are holding 41*f or less. Temporary correction is the owner brought over his reefer truck to store product from the above coolers in until tech can get out to repair these units. Put pans of water in all 3 of these coolers and take temps of the water after the units have been repaired. If the water temps are 40*f or below, then you can store product back in these coolers. I will be back in 2 weeks to verify units are holding product at 41*f or less.
