Violations: Comments:
The purpose of this visit was to conduct a routine inspection.
You will need to focus on sanitizing dishes.
Until the quaternary ammonia dispenser if repaired, please use bleach(chlorine) to sanitize dishes. Use the test strips I have given to test for the correct concentration. Your sink basin will need approximately 2.5 capfuls of the bleach in order to have 50 ppm.
The repair on the quaternary ammonia dispenser will need to be completed within 30 days. (the sooner the better though) At that time, you will not need to measure out the bleach solution to sanitize dishes.
There are outbreaks of Norovirus in this county. One way of preventing Norovirus is to sanitize all dishes properly. Please be sure to do this to prevent any employees or customers from becoming sick.
Thermolabel turned to black verifying dishes being sanitized if put through dish machine. (Not all dishes are sanitized in this manner, therefore the above chemical sanitation is required.)
Reminder
Wash and sanitize deli slicer every 4 hours or when changing types of meats to be cut.
Other ways of preventing Norovirus (one of the most common foodborne illnesses)
1. Employee Health and Hygiene
Ensure that ALL employees, including management, understand reporting, restriction, and exclusion in regards to reportable symptoms (Vomiting, Diarrhea, Jaundice, and/or Sore Throat with Fever) and reportable diagnosis (Norovirus, Hepatitis A Virus, Shigella spp., E. coli 0157:H7, and Salmonella Typhi).
2. HANDWASHING
Instruct food employees to clean their hands and exposed portions of their arms immediately before engaging in food preparation including working with exposed food, clean equipment and utensils, unwrapped single-service and single-use articles and during food preparation, as often as necessary to remove soil and contamination and to prevent cross contamination when changing tasks. Ensure all food employees clean their hands and exposed portions of their arms with a cleaning compound in a lavatory by vigorously rubbing together the surfaces of their lathered hands for at least 20 seconds and thoroughly rinsing with clean water. Always wear gloves or use other suitable utensils such as tongs or deli tissue, when handling ready-to-eat food. Minimize bare hand contact with non-ready-to-eat food as well.
Food employees must wash hands
BEFORE: food preparation, putting on gloves, working with clean equipment, utensils, unwrapped single-service or single-use items;
AFTER: handling trash, using the restroom, smoking, eating, coughing, sneezing, handling dirty equipment, handling raw meat or poultry;
DURING: food preparation as often as necessary to prevent cross contamination
FOR 20 seconds with soap

Violation: 4-703.11(B) - Critical Repeat

Comments:
This is a follow-up inspection at this grocery store. At routine inspection of 11/27/07 and previous inspections the pot washing machine was not working. A letter was sent to the store manager on 12/12/07 requiring that the machine be repaired and the violation corrected wihin ten days of the receipt of the letter (12/13/07).
Manager said machine has been repaired. I ran two cycles with a thermolabel on a container. The thermolabel did not turn after either cycle. I rearranged the container (display dish) and ran a third cycle. The label still did not turn.
Do NOT use the machine until it is repaired. (note: wash temp. reading @ 140f).

Violations: Comments:
The purpose of this visit was to conduct a routine inspection.
Although the salad bar was not set up at the start of the inspection food preparation for the salad bar as well as warewashing of equipment and utensils used for salad bar preparation was in progress. Please remember that the presence of a CFM is required during all hours of food preparation, food service, and cleaning/wareashing as it relates to the salad bar.
Employees are keeping temperature logs for the salad bar and a food thermometer calibrated at 32F exactly was provided during the inspection. Alcohol swabs were also provided to sanitize the food thermometer. Employees were stocking the salad bar during the inspection. Cold temperatures of potentially hazardous foods were measured between 40F and 43F. The salad bar unit itself typically maintains food well below 41F. Ensure that after food is prepared and placed in the transport holding boxes it is quickly relocated to the salad bar tho ensure that proper temperatures are maintained. Chili and soups were not present during the inspection and therefore hot food temperatures were not measured. Remember that cold foods shall be maintained at 41F or less and hot foods shall be maintained at 140F or above. Ensure that soups are at least 140F when placed on the salad bar. If soup temperatures drop below 140F reheat the product to 165F and hold at 140F.

Ensure that all employees, including management, understand reporting, restriction, and exclusion. Employees are required to report diagnosed illnesses as well as associated symptoms to the person in charge (PIC). The PIC is required to exclude persons with diagnosed illnesses and restrict employees with the associated symptoms.

June 30, 2004 (Follow-up)


Violations: Comments:
The purpose of this visit was to conduct a followup to a routine inspection conducted on June 17, 2004.
Too many items were left uncorrected from the previous inspection. There must be a conscious effort to have maintenance come in and make the necessary repairs to the equipment listed above.
It is recommended that the steam table be re-evaluated as to how foods are being displayed and temperatures maintained. It is recommended that metal pans be used rather than plastic. It is recommended that more water be used in the steamer. It is also recommended that until the hot holding temperature is properly maintained, foods not be piled high above the top edge of the containers.
It is recommended that the wing bar also be re-evaluated for proper cold holding capabilities. Pans do not fit the cold box area properly, allowing much of the cold air to escape, leaving the food between 50Fand room temperature. The general manager did have all foods removed from this display until the problem can be addressed with corporate merchandising people.
It is expected that ALL violations listed above will be corrected within two weeks. When all items have been corrected, contact the Health Department to schedule a re-inspection.
