09/30/2015Routine
Previous hazards corrected. Cold holding units including make table temperatures being monitored. Proper glove use noted with hand washing and glove change with change of task. Still recommend leaving make table on rather than turning it off at night, today OK, must turn machine on 45 min. before adding food items as I noticed the motor hot air discharges directly under make table. Also recommend use of small fan under make table at motor hot air discharge to remove hot air from under the make table bottom.
No violation noted during this evaluation.
04/06/2015Risk Factor
The practice of turning off the sandwich bar at night is causing a risk of improper cold holding. The unit takes some time to get back to temperature and this generally costs more in electricity than leaving it on at night. It is recommend not to turn the unit off at night in order for the unit to be ready to hold food cold first thing in the morning. Unit was cooling down by the end of the inspection.
A person in charge must be designated at all times of operation and staff must be trained in all facets of food safety

  • Critical: Person in Charge - Assignment of Responsibility* (corrected on site)

  • Critical: Demonstration of Knowledge* (corrected on site)

    Correction: Ensure employees are knowledgeable about foodborne disease prevention, Hazardous Analysis Critical Control Point principles and Regulation requirements.

Employees must also recognize conditions that fail to comply with Regulation requirements and be authorized to take the appropriate preventive and corrective actions to ensure that the Regulations' objectives are fulfilled.
  • Critical: Food - Potentially Hazardous Food - Cold Holding*
    Observation: Food on the sandwich bar was measured at 44°F and the air temperature was at 43°F. The unit was turned on at 7:00 AM and food was placed into it at 7:45 AM.
    Correction: The unit needs to be on longer than it has been to be able to hold food at 41°F. Before food is placed into the unit the air tempeature should be below 40°F, generally 35-38 works well to keep food cold.
10/04/2014Risk Factor

Overall facility in good shape and refrigeration units are working properly.
Have the small walk-in adjusted as it is beginning to not be able to hold food at 41°F. Continue monitoring temperatures to assure the units are working.
