Inspection findings

Inspection Date


  • Food Storage Requirements & Prohibited Areas (46.321)
    --Observed food stock stored directly on the floor in the stock room and the walk-in freezer rather than 6 inches off of the floor as required. All were corrected during the inspection.
  • Materials for Surfaces that are Nonfood-Contact Surfaces (46.522)
    --Noted the the under the counter cooler has racks in poor repair with the coating peeling off and completely rusted underneath.
  • Food Temperature Measuring Devices Calibrated (46.691(b))
    --Food temperature measuring devices for ensuring proper food temperatures were not calibrated properly. The two food probes provided read 0*F and 6*F in a 32*F ice bath. Both were calibrated during the inspection. This was previously cited. Monitor to ensure compliance.
  • Objective of Cleaning Food Contact Surfaces & Utensils (46.711(a))
    --The interior food contact components of the ice making unit were observed to have black residue and was not clean to sight and touch despite being on a regular cleaning schedule. The manager was apparently unaware that the top water dispensing bar and the white rubber water hose could be disconnected for proper cleaning and sanitizing (the backsides had black residue present). Ice was discarded and the inside components were disassembled, cleaned, and sanitized. KEEP THOROUGHLY CLEANED TO MAINTAIN COMPLIANCE. A REPEAT VIOLATION OF THIS ITEM NUMBER (#14) CAN RESULT IN PROSECUTION.
