Comments:
Suggest relocating the health permit and training certificates to the front of the restaurant versus at the bar. Not all customers visit the bar area. Replace the empty food containers with appropriate cigarette butt urns outside the back door. Keep the outside storage shed cleaned and organized. The unused ice bin in the bar has become a collection site for miscellaneous items. Keep the bin emptied and cleaned. New regulations will be out this summer and will require a backflow preventer on the soda syrup dispensing units and all food items have labels containing all nutrient information. This may apply to the single service salad dressing containers supplied by the Olive Garden distributor. Maintain the training records, temperature logs, cleaning schedule, and the hazardous analysis critical control point plans. All reduced oxygen packaging processes will require a risk assessment plan and a continuous temperature monitoring device installed in the refrigeration unit where the food items are stored. This unit will be required to maintain a temperature below 38 degrees F. Further guidance will be provided when implementing the new regulatory changes. Corrective action on the critical violations was initiated during the inspection.
