Critical: Food - Packaged and Unpackaged - Separation, Packaging, and Segregation* (corrected on site) Observation: Raw food of animal origin holding in a manner that may cause cross contamination of to ready-to-eat food (RTE).
Correction: Separate raw foods during storage, preparation, holding, and display from raw RTE food including other raw food such as fish for sushi or molluscan shellfish, or other raw RTE food such as vegetables, and cooked RTE food.
Critical: Food - Potentially Hazardous Food - Hot Holding* (corrected on site) Observation: Cooked rice hot holding at improper temperatures.
Correction: Rapidly reheat the food to 165°F and maintain at 135°F or above through the hot holding period.
Equipment - Fixed Equipment, Spacing or Sealing Observation: The handwashing sink is not sealed to adjoining wall.
Correction: Seal the unit to adjoining equipment or walls since it is exposed to spillage or seepage.
Equipment - Good Repair and Proper Adjustment Observation: The lid to the ice machine is in poor repair.
Correction: Repair or replace the lid on the ice machine in accordance with the manufacturer's specifications.
Critical: Equipment - Food Contact Surfaces, Nonfood Contact Surfaces, and Utensils* (corrected on site) Observation: The following equipment food-contact surfaces were observed soiled to sight and touch: vegetable slicer.
Correction: Clean and sanitize these surfaces for food contact.
Food Storage Containers - Identified with Common Name of Food (corrected on site) Observation: Unlabeled food containers.
Correction: Label working containers with the common name of its contents. Consumers may be allergic to certain foods or ingredients. The mistaken use of an ingredient when the consumer has requested that it not be used may result in severe medical consequences. Liquid foods and granular foods may resemble cleaning compounds. The mistaken use of food from an unlabeled container could result in chemical poisoning.
Utensils - In-Use - Between-Use Storage (corrected on site) Observation: In-use utensils improperly stored between use. Knife stored in sanitizer.
Correction: Store in-use utensils or dispensing utensils in one of the following manners: 1) In the food with their handles above the top of the food and the container. 2) In food that is not potentially hazardous with their handles above the top of the food within containers or equipment that can be closed. 3) On a clean portion of the food preparation table or cooking equipment only if the in-use utensil and the food-contact surface of the food preparation table or cooking equipment are cleaned and sanitized every 4 hours. 4) In running water of sufficient velocity to flush particulates to the drain. 5) In a clean, protected location if the utensils are used only with a food that is not potentially hazardous. 6) In a container of water if the water is maintained at a temperature of at least 135°F.
Temperature - Food Temperature Measuring Devices - Provided Observation: The Person in Charge could not produce an appropriate food temperature measuring device to verify cooking temperatures of thin foods such as meat patties or fish filets.
Correction: A temperature measuring device with a suitable small-diameter probe that is designed to measure the temperature of thin masses shall be provided and readily accessible to accurately measure the temperature in thin foods such as meat patties and fish filets.
Equipment, Utensils, Linens, and Single-Service and Single-Use Articles Observation: Tray covers were found stored on top of the mechanical dish machine.
Correction: Store cleaned tray covers in a clean, dry location where not exposed to splash, dust or other contamination at least 6 inches above the floor.
Critical: Demonstration of Knowledge* (corrected on site) Observation: The person in charge failed to explain his or her responsibility in preventing the transmission of foodborne disease by an employee who has a disease or a medical condition that may cause foodborne disease.
Correction: Ensure the designated person in charge (PIC) is knowledgeable about foodborne disease prevention, Hazardous Analysis Critical Control Point principles and Regulation requirements. The PIC should be prepared to recognize conditions that may contribute to foodborne illness. The PIC must also recognize conditions that fail to comply with Regulation requirements and be authorized to take the appropriate preventive and corrective actions to ensure that the Regulations' objectives are fulfilled.
Critical: Food - Potentially Hazardous Food - Hot Holding* (corrected on site) Observation: Mashed potatoes hot holding at improper temperatures.
Correction: Hot hold potentially hazardous food at 135°F or above to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria.
Critical: Food - Potentially Hazardous Food - Cold Holding* (corrected on site) Observation: Prepared spaghetti cold holding at improper temperatures. Observed temperature of 52°F.
Correction: Relocate food to a refrigeration unit that is capable of maintaining food storage at 41°F or below.
Cooling Methods (corrected on site) Observation: Food containers for cooling food are arranged so as not allow for maximum heat transfer.
Correction: Arrange the food containers in the refrigeration equipment to provide maximum heat transfer through the container walls. Loosely cover or uncover the food if protected from overhead contamination during the cooling period to facilitate heat transfer from the surface of the food.
Critical: Cooling* (corrected on site) Observation: Mashed potatoes and green beans noted not being adequately cooled to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria.
Correction: Cool potentially hazardous foods from 135°F to 70°F within 2 hours and within a total of 6 hours from 135°F to 41°F. A longer time for cooling allows an ideal situation for bacterial growth. This has been shown to be the major contributing factor in many foodborne illnesses.
Sanitizing Solutions, Testing Devices (repeated violation) Observation: There is no properly working test kit provided in the facility for monitoring the concentration of the chemical sanitizing solutions.
Correction: Obtain a chlorine test kit so that employees can accurately monitor the concentration of the sanitizing solutions and maintain them at a safe and effective level.
Critical: Equipment - Food Contact Surfaces, Nonfood Contact Surfaces, and Utensils* (corrected on site) Observation: The following equipment food-contact surfaces were observed soiled to sight and touch: Drain on steam pot.
Correction: Clean and sanitize these surfaces for food contact.
Critical: Backflow Prevention Device, When Required* (corrected on site) Observation: Observed the pre-wash spray hose extend below the flood rim level of the steam pot.
Correction: Install an approved backflow prevention device or alter the length of the hose to provide the necessary separation between the water supply and the flood rim level of the steam pot. The minimum allowable separation distance must be at least 2x the diameter of the water supply inlet and at least 1 inch.
