I recommend you keep a better system to ensure Potentially Hazardous Foods (PHFs) are properly held--either HOT or COLD.
1. Make sure salad bar holds all PHFs at 41F or below. Do not stack deli meats high at the sandwich prep cooler. Do not leave deli meats at the prep counter while employees work on other duties.
2. Hot food items must be held 135F or above. Do not leave hot foods at the stove without any heat--this is not HOT holding.
