0610 - Corrected During Inspection Food stored on the floor (onions) or food stored less than 6" above the floor. Elevate food storage onto approved shelving with minimum 6" legs or casters.
0820 A 1 - Corrected During InspectionCritical Chili, hot dogs in the crock pots, and the potato cakes and mashed potatoes in the buffet bar are holding at improper temperatures. Re-heat each item above to 165, and then hold at 135 or above.
1320 - The thermometer in the refrigerator is showing a temperature of 28 deg. F. Actual temperature is 40 deg. F. Thermometer is not accurate. Replace with a working thermometer.
1510 - Establishment has at least 3 food probe thermometers, all for reading hot holding only. Purchase a food proble thermometer which measures both hot and cold holding. Usually, they read on a scale from 0 to 220 deg. F.
First of all, I just want to remind you of your required holding temperatures for potentially hazardous foods (phfs). Cold holding is 41 deg. F. or below, hot holding is 135 or above, and re-heating prepared phfs must be 165 deg. F. for 15 seconds. Use a food probe thermometer to monitor your hot holding of foods in your crock pots and on your buffet. Keep the water level up enough to maintain proper holding temperatures. You may also use time instead of temperature for public health control. If you do use time, you need to keep a daily log. The log should indicate the time that is four hours past the point in time when the food is removed from temperature control. The food shall be cooked and served, served if ready to eat, or discarded, within four hours from the point in time when the food is removed from temperature control.
