Observed good food handling practices during today's inspection.
  • Jewelry - Prohibition (corrected on site)
    Observation: Employees wearing jewelry on their arms and hands while preparing food.
    Correction: Ensure employees are not wearing jewelry on their arms and hands while preparing food. This section does not apply to a plain ring such as a wedding band.
  • Critical: Date Marking - Ready-to-Eat - Potentially Hazardous Food - Date Marking* (corrected on site)
    Observation: The prepared ready-to-eat (RTE) foods such as salsa (prepared in-house), chicken taco mix and cooked yuca in the refrigeration unit is not properly dated for disposition.

If the food is held at 41°F or below the food shall be served or sold within 7 calendar days. Some harmful bacteria continue to grow even at refrigeration temperatures so limiting the amount of time in storage limits the amount of growth allowed for these bacteria.
  • Handwashing - Using a Handwashing Lavatory - No Other Purpose (corrected on site) (repeated violation)
    Observation: The handwash station to the left of the three compartment sink is being used for purposes other than washing hands. Observed several whole raw chickens stored in this sink during preparation. Discussed with the person in charge. Chickens were removed, and sink basin was cleaned and sanitized during inspection.

  • Outer Openings - Protected
    Observation: Outer opening of the food establishment is not protected against entry of insects and rodents. Observed both the front and rear door of the establishment propped open during today's inspection.
    Correction: Protect the food establishment against the entry of insects and rodents by 1. Filling or closing holes and other gaps along floors, walls, and ceilings, 2. Closed, tight fitting windows, and 3. Solid, self-closing, tight-fitting doors. Insects and rodents are vectors of disease-causing microorganisms which may be transmitted to humans by contamination of food and food-contact surfaces.
  • Physical Facilities in Good Repair
    Observation: Vinyl coving along the wall leading to the rear door is missing in some areas and peeling away from the wall in others.
    Correction: Maintain physical facilities in good repair. Poor repair and maintenance compromises the functionality of the physical facilities.
  • Physical Facilities - Cleaning Frequency and Restrictions
    Observation: Floors along the cookline, along the wall leading to the rear door of the facility and under the dry storage shelving are noted in need of cleaning.
    Correction: All floors, walls, and ceilings must be cleaned as often as necessary to keep them clean. Cleaning of the physical facilities is an important measure in ensuring the protection and sanitary preparation of food. A regular cleaning schedule should be established and followed to maintain the facility in a clean and sanitary manner.
  • Mops - Drying Mops
    Observation: Mops not hung up to air dry.
    Correction: Wet use maintenance items such as mops must be hung in a position that allows them to air dry so they are not allowed to grow contamination which can then be spread through the establishment at the next use.
