02/25/2016Follow-up
The rear walk-in refrigerator is now cold holding food properly.
A water heater that is capable of meeting the hot water demand for the facility during all hours of operation must be acquired. This must be completed by Feburary 26th, 2016.
Until the water heater is replaced, the dishwasher must not be used when the temperature of the water is below 120°F.

  • Warewashing Machines, Manufacturers' Operating Instructions (repeated violation)

    Correction: Operate the warewashing machine per affixed data plate specifications to ensure that equipment and utensils are properly cleaned and sanitized.
  • Critical: Water Capacity* (repeated violation)
    Observation: There has been replacement of the water heater. The current water heater (LIST Make, Model, KW/ BTU input, Recovery Rate 100°F Rise of the equipment) has been calculated and the peak hot water demand for the establishment cannot be met.
    Correction: An upgrade of this water heater is required to provide a minimum (GPH) recovery rate at 100°F rise within 10 days. Prior to purchase or installation of the water heater, contact me at 276-328-1935 to provide all information (i.e. make, model, input, and recovery rate) or fax a copy of the unit specifications to my attention at the Health Department for final approval.
02/19/2016Follow-up
°The rear walk-in refrigerator needs adjusted today to hold food properly. The temperature is low enough that the food is able to be saved.
The dishwasher machine is not reaching proper temperature and manual sanitizing must done until the water is up to temperature. The dishwasher was also leaking water and needs to be repaired.
When cooling beans split into shallow pans, recommend 4 instead of 3. Place each container on the wire rack and leave uncovered until cooled. Monitor temperature to assure it reaches 70°F in 2 hours and 41°F in a total of 6 hours.
When placing sliced tomatoes on ice beside the grill, note the time to assure that they are used within 4 hours. A written plan would be required for this. The other option is to keep the tomatoes in the prep refrigerator.
Return visit will be within 48 hours to assure work is being done on the noted items. All critical items must be corrected within 10 days. noncritical items should be corrected within 30 days.

  • Food - Packaged and Unpackaged - Separation, Packaging, and Segregation (repeated violation)
    Observation: Observed that deli meat in the Cold Tech refrigerator and rice in the dry storage not protected from contaimination because it was not in packages, covered containers, or wrapped.
    Correction: Prevent contaimination by storing food in packages, covered containers, or wrappings.
  • Critical: Cooling* (corrected on site)
    Observation: Beans noted not being adequately cooled to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria.
    Correction: Cool potentially hazardous foods from 135°F to 70°F within 2 hours and within a total of 6 hours from 135°F to 41°F. 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. Beans discarded.
  • Critical: Food - Potentially Hazardous Food - Cold Holding*
    Observation: Food in the rear walk-in and tomatoes on ice cold holding at improper temperatures
    Correction: Discard the food and ensure that potentially hazardous foods for cold holding are maintained at 41°F or below to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria.
  • Critical: Date Marking - Ready-to-Eat - Potentially Hazardous Food - Date Marking*
    Observation: The prepared ready-to-eat (RTE) beans and other items in the refrigeration unit is 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.
  • Warewashing Machines, Manufacturers' Operating Instructions
    Observation: The mechanical warewashing machine was not operatig in accordance with the manufacturer's specifications. The water was less than 80° F.
    Correction: Operate the warewashing machine per affixed data plate specifications to ensure that equipment and utensils are properly cleaned and sanitized.

    Correction: An upgrade of this water heater is required to provide a minimum (GPH) recovery rate at 100°F rise within 10 days. Prior to purchase or installation of the water heater, contact me at 276-328-1935 to provide all information (i.e. make, model, input, and recovery rate) or fax a copy of the unit specifications to my attention at the Health Department for final approval.
