September 13, 2004 (Follow-up)

Comments:
This is a follow up inspection from the inspection dated 9-10-04 to confirm there is hot water at the sinks in the kitchen. Mr Hayes confirmed there was hot water at the sinks on 9-10-04 before he left for the day. It was 200F. However, there was a power failure at the school ad there was not power wehn he arrived today at 6:00am. He discarded the milk from the walk-in refrigerator because it was >41F, but other foods were at proper temperatures. The power came back on at 9:00am. I checked the temperature when I arrived and it was 89F. Mr Hayes called maintenance who confirmed the tanks indicate the water temperature is 212F. Therefore, since the boilers are far from the cafeteria, keep the water on/running until the hot water gets to the kitchen.
