Violations: Comments:
~All foods should remain covered at all times, including dry storage (i.e. bread crumbs).
~Scoop handles should be kept out of product (i.e. flour) one was/one wasn't.
~Keep short mop hose out of mop sink rim due to faucet vacuum breaker.
~Funnel should be removed at ice machine drain to allow for a one inch air gap, back flow prevention.
-Be sure the dishwasher hits 180 degrees Fahrenheit or else it is not sanitizing, if doesn't use 3-Vat.
Comments: Try to increase light in walk-in fridge/freezer if possible. Walk-in freezer handle still on order (PIC states takes about a year). PIC said did not impair function. Two vat is dump sink. Caulk has been repaired at handsink. Servolift used for plates only. Recommend putting internal thermometers in all fridges in warmest area of unit, all fridges had external thermometers. Walk-in is holding product right around 41 degrees Fahrenheit, if possible product should be held at around 38 degrees Fahrenheit to prevent danger zone fluctuation since this facility serves a highly susceptible population. Please call when dishwasher problem is identified.

Violation: 1800 - The nonfood contact surface of the Ice Machine and Microwave interior top has accumulations of grime and debris.
Clean the surface at a frequency necessary to preclude accumulation of soil residues that become encrusted or attract insects and rodents.
Comments:
Handsink needs to be resealed to wall near office. Be sure all scoops are stored handle up in product and all food products in after market containers are clearly labeled. Be sure to store food at least 6 inches off floor even in freezer and that dishwasher is operating at data plate specifications of 150 wash/180 degrees Fahrenheit Rinse. Also be sure all dented cans are placed in isolated dented can section.
*Great signs and labels, hair restraints/gloves in use and handwashing evident.* Good Job!
