Comments:
The purpose of this visit was to conduct a potential foodborne illness investigation. A critical procedures evaluation was conducted in conjunction with the FBI Investigation.
Review the Big 5 Food-borne Illnesses (Salmonella, E.Coli, Shigella, Hepatitis A, and Norovirus) and the symptoms associated with these illnesses (diarrhea, vomiting, fever and/or jaundice). Ensure that all employees, including management, understand reporting, restriction, and exclusion.
COOKING, REHEATING & HOLDING TEMPERATURES:
Review cooking, reheating, and holding temperatures with food service employees
COOKING: Poultry 165F; Ground Beef & Comminuted Meats 155F; Steaks, Seafood, Pork, and Raw Shell Eggs 145F
REHEATING: PHFs prepared on site 165F, Commercially Processed Foods 140F
HOLDING: Hot 135F+, Cold 41F-
DO NOT let food sit in the “DANGER ZONE” (41F-135F) for extended periods of time.
FOOD STORAGE:
Food shall be stored in the refrigeration and freezer units according to cook temperature to prevent contamination. Raw food products requiring higher cook temperatures shall be stored below raw food products requiring lower cook temperatures.
TOP SHELF – 145F Whole Intact Steaks, Pork, Seafood, Raw Shell Eggs
MIDDLE SHELF – 155F Raw Ground Beef, Sausage, & Other Comminuted Meats
BOTTOM SHELF – 165F Raw Poultry
It is recommended that raw animal products be stored completely separate from raw vegetables, cooked animal products and other non-animal products, such as noodles & rice. If these foods are not stored on a separate shelf from the above listed raw animal products they must be stored above all raw animal products.
HANDWASHING REMINDER:
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, and 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 task.
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 and warms 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.
DATEMARKING:
Mark the name and "consume by" date on the container of ready-to-eat (RTE), potentially hazardous food (PHF) at the time of preparation if the food is to be held for more than 24 hours. Similarly, mark a "consume by" date on commercially processed RTE foods at the time the original container is opened. If the food is held at 41F or below the food shall be served or sold within 7 calendar, including the prep/open date. 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.
COOLING:
Cool potentially hazardous foods from 135F to 70F within 2 hours and from 70F to 41F or below within 4 hours. A longer time for cooling allows an ideal situation for bacterial growth. This has been shown to be the major contributing factor in many foodborne illnesses.
Do not allow food to cool at room temperature. When the temperature of hot food falls below 140F it must be under temperature control to prevent bacterial growth.
Critical Violations shall be corrected within 10 days.
Non-Critical Violations shall be corrected within 90 days.
FOR MORE INFORMATION:
ALL inspections are available for public viewing on the State of Virginia website (www.vdh.virginia.gov).

A regular cleaning schedule should be established and followed to maintain the facility in a clean and sanitary manner.
  • 7-102.11 - Corrected During Inspection Critical Sanitizing solution buckets observed not properly labeled.
    Working containers of toxic items are to be properly labeled with contents. Identification of these containers with the common name of the material helps prevent the dangerous misuse of the contents.
Comments:
This visit was made to conduct a Critical Procedures Inspection.
This inspection places emphasis on those items and procedures that most directly affect the safety and sanitation of the foods served. Other less critical items, if present, are not fully noted in this report but are brought to the managers attention for correction as needed.
**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 or diagnosed illnesses.**

Please review the following comments:
- Due to lack of establishment cleanliness, a follow-up will be conducted within ten (10) days, on or about 10.11.05. Please clean ALL food and nonfood contact surfaces.
- 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.
- Train employees on the importance of handwashing. Effective handwashing is essential for minimizing the likelihood of the hands becoming a vehicle of cross contamination. *Increase employee handwashing frequency.*
- Current Health permit observed posted.
- Test kit and food thermometer were provided.
- Professional Pest Control Company services monthly. No activity/evidence noted today.
If you have any questions, please contact me. Thank you.
