Violation: 0790 - Corrected During Inspection Improper methods used to thaw meatballs. Thawing using extended time at room temperature.
Thaw potentially hazardous foods by either of the following methods: 1. Under refrigeration that maintains food temperature at 41F (45F) 2. Completely submerged under running water at a temperature of 70F or below with sufficient water velocity to agitate and float off loose particles in an overflow. Ready-to-eat food shall not exceed 41F and raw animal foods shall not exceed 41F for more than four hours 3. As part of the cooking process
Operator has obtained test strips for Quaternary Ammonia Sanitizer. The strips were non-reactive with the Sani-Q product. Operator did not understand how to use them since they were not responsive. I believe the test strips were either old or compromised, however their use with Sani-Q should be checked and proper strips utilized to check concentration.

Discard the foods discussed and ensure that potentially hazardous foods for cold holding are maintained at 41F or below to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria. NOTE: The Beverage air unit in kitchen was turned to a colder setting before I left and air temperature was downward to 38F; We did not change any setting on the walk-in unit.
I discussed with operator proper food storage containers, and what could be re-used vs. what was considered single use articles.
