07/23/2014Follow-up
I observed better hygienic practices today. Workers were washing hands in the handsink. Dishes were being sanitized. Provide proof of pest service to kitchen. Young roach observed today which proves that roaches are multiplying. Cardboard allows a means for roaches to enter kitchen and to live. Cooked noodles were found at 90 F on flat trays. Good use of flat trays and spreading product out to cool quicker. However, once the food reaches room temperature you must put in refrigerator because it will not get cooler by setting in a hot kitchen. Time was trying to be tracked on fried rice but worker didn't change the time from yesterday. All workers who cook must understand that the food must be timed (fried rice, wings and Gen Tso's chicken). Also all workers must understand when they cook food they must place a date on the food. Some foods had dates and others did not. Full compliance has not been demonstrated. I will return to check on refrigerator and that foods are being properly dated and those on time control are being time tracked. Failure to understand and demonstrate these food safety practices may jeopardize your permit.

Complaint: found metal wire in food. Wire scrubbies are used for cleaning woks. I explained that cooks must be observant for pieces that may fall off and to change scrubbies more often.
No violation noted during this evaluation.

Noodles were being cooled on flat tray as previously discussed. Cooked fried rice was 130 degrees. If making more than what is on time control then take appropriate steps to cool quickly. Rice was divided. Keep handsink free and clear. It was a little tight to approach sink today. Do not use "Walmart" bags for food storage. Rice scoop was in standing water - place on time and change frequently - do not exceed 4 hours.
