  • Utensils - In-Use - Between-Use Storage (corrected on site)
    Observation: Dispensing utensils improperly stored between uses.
    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.
  • Cooling Methods (corrected on site)
    Observation: The methods used for cooling were not adequate.
    Correction: Cool foods by the following methods: 1. Placing food in shallow pans 2. Separating food into smaller thinner portions 3. Using rapid chill cooling equipment 4. Stirring the food in a container placed in an ice water bath 5. Using containers that facilitate heat transfer 6. Adding ice as an ingredient 7. Any other method that can effectively accomplish cooling.
  • Critical: Ready-to-Eat - Potentially Hazardous Food - Disposition* (corrected on site) (repeated violation)
    Observation: The prepared ready-to-eat (RTE) (mac&cheese,baked corncheese sauce,chicken gravy) in the walk-in refrigeration unit was not discarded by the ""consume by"" date. Some older containers were observed to have mold along the edge of containers, these items should be removed from the unit.
    Correction: Discard the food at this time and ensure all prepared RTE food is served, sold or discarded by the ""consume by"" date. 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.
  • Non-Food Contact Surfaces (repeated violation)
    Observation: The nonfood contact surface of the shelving in the walk in unit, stand up unit, and prep unit has accumulations of grime and debris. In addition the back splash and caulk line along the 3 compartment sink has an accumulation of mildew.
    Correction: Clean the surface at a frequency necessary to preclude accumulation of soil residues that become encrusted and prevent the growth of mildew.

    Observation: Less than 50 foot candles of light was noted in the kitchen prep/cooking area.
    Correction: Provide at least 50 foot candles at a surface where a food employee is working with food or working with utensils or equipment such as knives, slicers, grinders, or saws where employee safety is a factor
