12/05/2013Follow-up
  • Utensils - In-Use - Between-Use Storage
    Observation: Dispensing utensils improperly stored between uses.
    Correction: Store in-use utensils or dispensing utensils in one of the following manners: 1) In the food with their handles above the top of the food and the container. 2) In food that is not potentially hazardous with their handles above the top of the food within containers or equipment that can be closed. 3) On a clean portion of the food preparation table or cooking equipment only if the in-use utensil and the food-contact surface of the food preparation table or cooking equipment are cleaned and sanitized every 4 hours. 4) In running water of sufficient velocity to flush particulates to the drain. 5) In a clean, protected location if the utensils are used only with a food that is not potentially hazardous. 6) In a container of water if the water is maintained at a temperature of at least 135°F.
  • Critical: Food - Potentially Hazardous Food - Cold Holding*
    Observation: Several foods in the refrigerator cold holding at improper temperatures, Sliced Ham 44 deg. and Sliced Cheese 44 deg.
    Correction: Relocate food to a refrigeration unit that is capable of maintaining food storage at 41°F or below.
  • Critical: Date Marking - Ready-to-Eat - Potentially Hazardous Food - Date Marking*
    Observation: The prepared ready-to-eat sliced ham, hamburger, sliced turkey, cheese and tuna salad 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.
  • Critical: Ready-to-Eat - Potentially Hazardous Food - Disposition*
    Observation: The prepared ready-to-eat chicken salad in the refrigeration unit was not discarded by the ""consume by"" date.
    Correction: Discard the food at this time and ensure all prepared RTE food is served, sold or discarded by the ""consume by"" date. 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.
  • Cooling, Heating, and Holding Capacities (corrected on site)
    Observation: The refrigerator was overstocked and is not sufficient in number or capacity to meet the food storage demands of the establishment.
    Correction: Provide additional refrigeration equipment as necessary to maintain food items at 41 degrees F. or less. Overstocked equipment does not allow for proper air circulation and/or heat transfer. Improper food storage temperatures are a major contributing factor to foodborne illness.
  • Temperature - Food Temperature Measuring Devices - Provided
    Observation: The Person in Charge could not produce an appropriate food temperature measuring device to verify cooking temperatures of thin foods such as meat patties or fish filets.
    Correction: A temperature measuring device with a suitable small-diameter probe that is designed to measure the temperature of thin masses shall be provided and readily accessible to accurately measure the temperature in thin foods such as meat patties and fish filets.
  • Handwashing - Using a Handwashing Lavatory - No Other Purpose (corrected on site)
    Observation: The handwash station in the kitchen area is being used for purposes other than washing hands.
    Correction: The handwash facility identified above is to be used for washing hands only
  • Critical: Sanitizer - Criteria/Chemicals for food contact* (corrected on site)
    Observation: Chlorine sanitizer being applied to food contact surfaces does not meet the requirements of 40 CFR 180.940
    Correction: Utilize only sanitizer that meet the requirements of 40 CFR 180.940 when applying to food contact surfaces
11/19/2013Routine
PIC to purchase an appropriate food thermometer (small tip). PIC reminded to keep wiping cloths stored in the sanitizer between uses.
  • Critical: Equipment and Utensils - Before Use After Cleaning* (corrected on site)
    Observation: The cutting board was not properly sanitized.
    Correction: After cleaning and rinsing of the food-contact surface, the surface shall be effectively sanitized before coming in contact with food and before use.
