(1) Observed cardboard covered wire shelves in the glass door display coolers on the right side of the store being used for under display stabilizing of PHF / dairy items. Cease this practice. Remove cardboard. Cardboard does not constitute a smooth, easily cleanable, and durable commercial grade surface, and may impede the proper air circulation patterns within cooling units. Do not render equipment or storage surfaces difficult to properly clean and sanitize. Do not render the air flow patterns in the cooler units ineffective or unable to operate as originally designed. If surface no longer meets a smooth and easily cleanable commercial grade surface standard, properly repair or replace. Operator began to immediately remove cardboard.

(2) Observed crumb and frosting type buildup inside the sweet bread box. Minor cracks starting to appear in clear door panels also. Improve cleaning frequency so as to prevent the buildup of visible residue and possible unintended vermin attraction. Ensure even low risk food contact surfaces (bread tongs, coffee pots, soda nozzles, etc) are washed / rinsed / sanitized not less than once in each 24 hour period.
