Inspection findings

Inspection date

Type

Critical violation must be corrected within 10 days, non-critical violation must be corrected within 30 days.
  • Critical: Date Marking - Ready-to-Eat - Potentially Hazardous Food - Date Marking*
    Observation: The ready-to-eat (RTE) commercially processed sliced ham, hot dogs, cheese sauce in the refrigeration unit was not properly dated for disposition after opening.
    Correction: Mark a "consume by" date on commercially processed RTE foods at the time the original container is opened. If the food is held at 41°F or below the food shall be served or sold within 7 calendar days. 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.
  • Outer Openings - Protected
    Observation: Outer opening of the food establishment is not protected against entry of insects and rodents. The back kitchen door had a gap under and above screen door.
    Correction: Protect the food establishment against the entry of insects and rodents by 1. Filling or closing holes and other gaps along floors, walls, and ceilings, 2. Closed, tight fitting windows, and 3. Solid, self-closing, tight-fitting doors. Insects and rodents are vectors of disease-causing microorganisms which may be transmitted to humans by contamination of food and food-contact surfaces.
10/09/2015Routine
  • Utensils - In-Use - Between-Use Storage (corrected on site)
    Observation: Dispensing utensils improperly stored between uses (ice scoop stored atop ice maker).
    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.
  • Critical: Date Marking - Ready-to-Eat - Potentially Hazardous Food - Date Marking* (corrected on site)
    Observation: The prepared ready-to-eat (RTE) BBQ chicken and hash brown casserole in the refrigeration unit were not properly dated for disposition.
    Correction: Mark the name and "consume by" date on the container of RTE foods at the time of preparation if the food is to be held for more than 24 hours. If the food is held at 41°F or below the food shall be served or sold within 7 calendar days. 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.
  • Responsibilities of Owner or Proprietor
    Observation: Absence of no-smoking signs or international no-smoking signs in non-smoking area.
    Correction: Post of no-smoking signs or international no-smoking signs in non-smoking area. These can be found online at www.vdh.virginia.gov/breatheeasy
  • Microwave Ovens
    Observation: The microwave oven was found in a state of repair and condition that may result in human exposure to radiation leakage.
    Correction: Replace the component of the microwave unit that makes the unit unsafe or replace the entire unit with a commercially-listed, ANSI-certified (such as NSF-approved) unit.
  • Rinsing Procedures (corrected on site)
    Observation: A distinct, separate water rinse after washing and before sanitizing of utensils and equipment was not observed.
    Correction: Properly utilize the 3-compartment sink wash, rinse and sanitize basins in that order.
  • Light Bulbs Protective Shielding

    Correction: Shield or replace light bulb with a coated or shatter-resistant bulb.
  • Mops - Drying Mops
    Observation: Mops not hung up to air dry.
    Correction: Wet use maintenance items such as mops must be hung in a position that allows them to air dry so they are not allowed to grow contamination which can then be spread through the establishment at the next use.
05/18/2015Routine
  • Sanitizing Solutions, Testing Devices
    Observation: There is no properly working test kit provided in the facility for monitoring the concentration of the chemical sanitizing solutions.
