Comments:
Complaint: Excessive heat in kitchen. Field Visit: The hood system above the hot holding area and the fryers was not working properly. This was creating an excessive kitchen temperature. The heat was also making the cold holding units temperature increase to above acceptable levels. The establishment is no longer using the fryers. A service technician is addressing the problem. The fryers may be used again when the hood system fan and motor are working properly. The air conditioning was also out in the kitchen. The service agent fixed the hood system and the hood was working properly.
