There is no hot water at the hand sink in the men’s restroom and the second kitchen hand sink. Reconnect the hot water lines within 30 days. Obtain sufficient test strips to check sanitizer concentration each time the sink or sanitizer buckets are filled. Chlorine concentration should be at 50 ppm.

Raw shell eggs were stored above ready-to-eat foods in the walk-in refrigerator. The operator reorganized it and there was no evidence of contamination. Potato and macaroni salad containers were found in the walk-in refrigerator past the manufacturer’s pull date and/or open and seven days past the date of opening. Sliced tomatoes and shredded lettuce were found above 41 F in the grill-side preparation cooler. The operator stated the food had been there several hours. It was discarded and restocked. Keep the cooler lid shut to help regulate temperature. Salami, shredded lettuce, potato and macaroni salads were found in the salad bar cooler at approximately 50 F. The operator stated that food had been out for about an hour. Discard all potentially hazardous food in the cooler at 3 p.m. and restock for evening service. The establishment cooks large batches of some foods, then portions and freezes the batches. The operator states that the cooling takes approximately four hours, but does not check the temperature throughout the cooling process. The establishment should consider implementing and documenting a time-marking system for cold-hold items kept in preparation coolers or the salad bar. Thermometers were not available for use by the food preparation staff. Open boxes of exposed corn dogs and burritos were found in the walk-in units. This food should be kept covered. There was also food on the floor in multiple walk-in units. Post signs at the salad bar.
