The purpose of this visit was to conduct a complaint inspection. The Health Department received a complaint on 9.7.2006 regarding improper conduct and sanitary conditions. The complainant reported that employees at this establishment are urinating behind the dumpsters resulting in a very bad odor or "rotting smell."
Upon inspection today no employees were observed urinating behind the dumpsters and no objectionable odors were observed around the refuse area. Therefore, the complaint cannot be confirmed; however, this does not factualy indicate that the complainant's observation was not valid.
The CFM was instructed to prohibit employees from urinating outside of the establishment and to instruct employees to urinate inside of the establishment in the restrooms and toilets provided. The CFM was also advised that public urination cases will be referred to the Fairfax County Police Department who may impose penalties and/or fines for public urination (if observed).
The CFM was also instructed to ensure that employees are properly washing their hands after using the restroom, smoking, handling garbage, and at any other time when hands may have become contaminated and prior to food preparation. A handwashing brochure was provided to the CFM to properly train employees why, when, and how to wash their hands.
Please contact me with any questions.

Comments:
This is a Critical Procedure Inspection where the emphasis is on those risk factors that most directly affect the safe and sanitary preparation and service of food. Other less critical items, if observed, are not mentioned in this report but are brought to the food manager's attention for correction.
ALL critical and easily correctable non-critical violations shall be corrected immediately. If any questions arise, please contact me at the telephone number provided.
During the inspection of this establishment it was noted that management was not aware of the Food Code provision that employees are required to report certain symptoms or diagnosed illnesses to the person in charge (PIC). Also, the PIC/CFM could not convey knowledge of an employee health policy indicating what symptoms are to be reported and when to exclude/restrict an employee from their duties OR did not have access to a written policy stating what actions are necessary following a report that an employee has certain symptoms or diagnosed illnesses. As discussed with the CFM, employees shall be RESTRICTED from working in a food service establishment when they are experiencing symptoms of sore throat, fever, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and jaundice. Until the employee obtains documentation from a medical professional that he/she is no longer experiencing those symptoms may they return to work. If an employee has been diagnosed with and/or been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with Salmonella, Shigella, E.Coli, and Hepatitis A they are EXCLUDED from working in the food service establishment until laboratory tests have confirmed they are no longer carriers of the disease.
REMINDERS: 1. Employees shall wash their hands frequently at hand sinks using warm water and soap. 2. Employees shall handle food properly using utensils and/or wearing disposable gloves that are changed often. 3. Monitor food, refrigeration and freezer temperatures. Use your calibrated thermometers to ensure food is held at 41F or below and 140F or above. 4. Continue to inspect canned food deliveries and segregate any dented cans from general storage. 5. Maintain pest control services as needed. Keep records of all services provided. 6. Maintain grease trap and hood filter cleanings on a regular basis. Keep records of all cleanings performed. 7. Discuss with your employees illnesses, diseases, and symptoms that would prevent them from coming to work (e.g. vomiting, diarrhea, fever, E.Coli, Salmonella, etc.). 8. Properly date mark food items with the “use by” date if held beyond 24 hours. 9. Contact the Health Department before you make any changes, additions, and/or renovations to the establishment. 10. ALL inspections are available for public viewing on the State of Virginia’s website.
Please remember that proper hand washing is the most important thing that food service employees can do to prevent food contamination. Review when and how to wash hands with all employees and monitor hand washing practices.

2. Be sure to monitor all hot/cold potentially hazardous foods. Bacterial growth and/or toxin production can occur if PHF's remain in the temperature "Danger Zone" of 41F-140F too long.
3. During the inspection of this establishment it was noted that management was not aware of the Food Code provision that employees are required to report certain symptoms or diagnosed illnesses to the person in charge. Also, the PIC/CFM could not convey knowledge of an employee health policy indicating what symptoms are to be reported and when to exclude/restrict an employee from their duties OR did not have access to a written policy stating what actions are necessary following a report that an employee has certain symptoms are diagnosed illnesses.

7. Hood cleaned every six months, last date of service was 8/1/05.
8. It is important that raw meat is stored properly within refrigeration and freezer units to prevent cross contamination. Raw meat should be stored separately from ready to eat foods and from other types of raw meat. If stored on the same shelving unit within refrigerator and freezer units, raw meat should be stored as follows:
TOP SHELF: All pre-cooked and ready to eat foods (e.g. vegetables)
SECOND SHELF: Raw seafood/eggs
THIRD SHELF: Raw beef/raw pork
BOTTOM SHELF: Raw chicken
If needed, in Spanish it is as follows:
ESTANTE SUPERIOR: la comida precocinada y la comida que es lista para comer (como vegetales)
SEGUNDO ESTANTE: Mariscos crudo y huevos
TERCER ESTANTE: Carne cruda
ESTANTE INFERIOR: Pollo crudo

Comments:
This visit was made to conduct a routine inspection. Please review the following comments:
1. Critical violations remain to be corrected. A follow-up inspection will occur on or about 10/7/2004, at which time all critical violations must be corrected. Correct as many remaining violations as possible within that time as well.
2. Remember to test the concentration of the sanitizer for the wiping cloths. The testing device is required for two reasons: 1) the use of chemical sanitizers requires minimum concentrations of the sanitizer to ensure sanitization and 2) too much sanitizer could be toxic.
3. Professional Pest Control Company services bi-weekly. There were two (2) live roaches noted today. Continue to monitor premises for activity and increase service if necessary.

Comments:
This visit was made to conduct a routine inspection. Please review the following comments:
1. Critical violations remain to be corrected. A follow-up inspection will occur on or about 10/7/2004, at which time all critical violations must be corrected. Correct as many remaining violations as possible within that time as well.
2. Remember to test the concentration of the sanitizer for the wiping cloths. The testing device is required for two reasons: 1) the use of chemical sanitizers requires minimum concentrations of the sanitizer to ensure sanitization and 2) too much sanitizer could be toxic.
3. Professional Pest Control Company services bi-weekly. There were two (2) live roaches noted today. Continue to monitor premises for activity and increase service if necessary.
If you have any questions, please contact me. Thank you.
