Inspection findings

Inspection date


1. Sandwiches and salads are currently being 'blast chilled' in the WIF for a short time and stored in the WIC until needed. Only a couple are being taken out at a time and stored in the line cold wells, or the display cases. Temperatures are being maintained at 41 F or less! Suggested also trying to leave lids off salads when cooling on speed racks, with spaces between the sheet trays to allow for maximum air flow.
2. Make sure to wipe down the interior ledge of the ice machine every week to help prevent any mold build-ups.

No violation noted during this evaluation.
Adequate thermometer, sanitizer, test kit, and hi-temperature dish machine.
Suggest drilling a couple of holes in the bottom of the ice scoop holder so it can drain.
Repaint the low shelves of prep tables so the surfaces are smooth and easily cleanable.
Discussed the facility's warming practices. All bunned items are put back in the oven for further heating after being assembled/wrapped to help bump temperatures back up. Procedure seems very effective.
PIC stated salads and sandwiches are prepped early and returned to the WIC. If temperatures are still above 41 F prior to service time, the items are placed in the WIF for about 5 minutes to 'blast chill' them.
