    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) (repeated violation)
    Observation: Chicken tenders and soup beans 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.
  • Critical: Equipment and Utensils - Hot Water and Chemical Sanitizing* (repeated violation)
    Observation: Due to improper operation of the mechanical warewashing machine, equipment food-contact surfaces and utensils are not sanitized after cleaning. (See 12 VAC 5-421-1680) (Surface temperatures are not reaching a sanitizing temperature of 160°F. )
    Correction: Repair the unit so that achieving a utensil surface temperature of 160°F can be measured by an irreversible registering temperature indicator (e.g. thermolabel and maximum registering thermometer). Discontinue use of mechanical warewashing machine and convert to use of 3-vat sink wash, rinse and chemical sanitization. Use single-service items as deemed necessary if not capable of effective manual washing, rinsing, and sanitization of food-contact surfaces.
