Type

The operator provided a metal probe thermometer and chlorine test strips during today's inspection.
  • Cooling Methods (corrected on site)
    Observation: The methods used for cooling were not adequate ( previously prepared sausage patties were observed cooling at room temperature, in a covered container, in the rear prep area..
    Correction: Cool foods by the following methods: 1. Placing food in shallow pans 2. Separating food into smaller thinner portions 3. Using rapid chill cooling equipment 4. Stirring the food in a container placed in an ice water bath 5. Using containers that facilitate heat transfer 6. Adding ice as an ingredient 7. Any other method that can effectively accomplish cooling.

    Observation: Melted butter was observed being held at room temperature on the front cookline. The operator removed the TCS food product.
    Correction: Cold hold potentially hazardous food at 41°F or below to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria.
  • Premises - Maintaining Premises - Unnecessary Items and Litter
    Observation: Facility is storing unnecessary items to the operation or maintenance of the establishment ( several inoperable equipment was observed in the back hallway) .
    Correction: Remove all unnecessary items from the facility. The presence of unnecessary articles, including equipment which is no longer used, makes regular and effective cleaning more difficult and less likely. It can also provide harborage for insects and rodents.

  • Critical: Cooling* (corrected on site)
