September 16, 2009 (Follow-up)

Comments:
Follow up on temperatures inside new reach-in and dishmachine final rinse temperature. No food available to temp inside refrigerator because food was just brought from walk-in. None of the workers on duty could verify proper temperature of unit. Interior thermometer was 45 degrees, exterior thermometer 40 degrees. Place a bottle of water inside unit and monitor this temperature during line checks to ensure unit has been repaired properly and can maintain food at 41 degrees or below. I will bring a data logger to monitor temperature. 157 degrees wash/181 degrees. Dishmachine appears to be running at proper temperatures.
