August 27, 2009 (Risk Factor Assessment)

Comments:
This is a critical procedures inspection. No critical violations noted during inspection. Thank you. If you have any questions, please call 703-246-84442

February 25, 2009 (Routine)


Violations: Comments:
The purpose of this visit was to conduct a routine inspection.
It is strongly recommended that the sanitizer dispenser be serviced to provide the correct concentration of quaternary ammonia in the sanitizer solution. Temporarily, it is recommended that the sink be filled half way with chemical solution and the other half with plain water. Use the test kit to monitor the concentration of the chemical solution at the 3 vat sink.
It was observed that none of the handsinks were usable at the beginning of this inspection. The most important action that employees can take to prevent the spread of a food borne illness is to wash their hands properly. Maintain the handsinks in working order - soap, paper towels, easy to get to.
The Employee Illness flow chart was given to the person in charge with instructions regarding restriction and exclusion of employees if symptoms of foodborne illness are observed.
The next routine inspection will be in approximately six months.

August 31, 2006 (Critical Procedures)


Violations: Comments:
The purpose of today's visit was to conduct a critical procedures inspection as a result of a foodbourne illness complaint received by our office. The complaint was received on 8/30/2006. The complainant stated they were at the restaurant on 8/28/2006 around 3:15pm. The patron's meal consisted of a cheeseburger, french fries and a coke soda. The patron began experiencing stomach cramps, nausea and diarrhea at 5:30pm that same evening. The complainant also stated that the rest-rooms were filthy.
Based on the information collected during today's investigation, it is possible that this facility may have been the source of the complainant's illness, however without scientific evidence to support this claim, the complaint can not be confirmed at this time.
The facility must not use grill #2 to prepare hamburgers or any other patty that must be compressed by the grill. Per the CFM, grill #2 will be used for grilled chicken only. Facility must fax a copy of service report to the Health Department.
Remember to monitor the temperatures of all hot and cold holding equipment and continue to take temperature checks frequently. Monitor the handwashing of employees and make sure all handwashing stations are stocked with soap, signage and papertowels.

April 20, 2005 (Routine)


Violations: 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.**
This visit was made to conduct a routine inspection. Please review the following comments:
1. All critical violations were corrected during the inspection.
2. Walk-in cooler was checked at end of inspection. The ambient air temperature was detected at 45F.
The condenser observed frozen over. Certified Food Manager advised that a company was going to repair the unit today. She had contacted them prior to my inspection. Please monitor the unit. Be sure all cold PHF's maintain at 41F or below. Please fax copy of invoice of service to the Health Department once the unit has been repaired and an ambient air temperature of 41F or below can be maintained. The unit's temperature had dropped six degrees during the inspection. However, the unit was still not at 41F.
3. All remaining violations must be corrected before the next routine inspection.
4. 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.
5. 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.*
6. Professional Pest Control Company services monthly. No activity/evidence noted today.
7. Big five FBI info sheet was left with the CFM.
If you have any questions, please contact me. Thank you.
REMINDERS:
Ensure that:
• employees are effectively cleaning their hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
• employees understand illnesses and symptoms that would prevent them from coming to work (i.e., vomiting, diarrhea, fever, etc.).
• food is received from approved sources at the proper temperatures and in sound condition.
• the proper temperatures of Potentially Hazardous Foods during receiving, storage, preparation, cooling, reheating, and service by using a probe thermometer.
• foods are rapidly cooled down within 4 hours.
• employees are properly cleaning multiuse equipment and utensils by washing, rinsing, and sanitizing.
• there is no bare hand contact with ready-to-eat foods by using deli tissue, single use gloves, or tongs as a barrier.
• employees are properly trained in food safety as it relates to their assigned duties.

March 01, 2005 (Complaint)

Comments:
This visit was made to conduct a site assessment due to a potential foodborne illness complaint received by our department yesterday, 02.28.05. The complaint involved an individual who ate chicken nuggets around noon on 02.26.05 and became ill of vomiting about twelve (12) hours after consumption. The vomiting lasted about six (6) hours.
Please review the following comments:
1. The Certified Food Manager was unaware of the complaint.
2. Sales for the date of 02.26.05 were reviewed with by the manager. Over three hundred (300) orders of chicken nuggets were served that day (see attached sheets).
3. The CFM indicated that no employees have been ill recently. Employees were all wearing gloves and visors at time of inspection. CFM advised that it is policy to wash hands every thirty minutes and when switching tasks. All hand sinks were found conveniently located, equipped with hot water, soap, and paper towels. All employees were found to exhibit acceptable personal hygiene.
4. The chicken nuggets are received frozen weekly.
5. The chicken nuggets are taken straight from the freezer to the fryer. They are then cooked/fried for four minutes. I observed the cook temperature to be about 199F. The chicken nuggets are then hot held for no more than thirty minutes. I observed a hot hold temperature of 155F. After thirty minutes the chicken nuggets are discarded.
Due to today's findings and a lack of scientific evidence such as lab tests, there is insufficient evidence to link this establishment as the source of illness. The following recommendations have been made at this time:
- Monitor all employees for illness, personal hygiene, handwashing, and glove/hat use.
- Report any additional complaints to our department at 703.246.2444.
If you have any questions, please contact me. Thank you.
