4-26-2021 All food employees shall have adequate knowledge of and be trained in food safety as it relates to their assigned duties. The person in charge shall have adequate knowledge of, and shall educate employees of the food facility regarding major food allergens. (113947) Food facilities that prepare, handle or serve non-prepackaged potentially hazardous food, shall have an employee who has passed an approved food safety certification examination. (113947-113947.1) 3.00 The responsibilities of the staff member certified in food safety include ensuring that all employees who handle, or have responsibility for handling, unpackaged foods of any kind have sufficient knowledge to ensure the safe preparation and /or service of the food. The nature and extent of the knowledge that each employee is required to have may be tailored, as appropriate, to the employee's duties related to food safety issues. Observed lack of knowledge of the correct procedure for use of a 3 compartment sink as a conditionally handwash location / lack of knowledge of the need to sanitize a 'clean' sink compartment after use as a handwash location. Staff initially indicated use of the restroom sink by staff, but paper towel and soap dispensers are mounted above the three compartment sink. Staff were informed the restroom sink cannot count as the required handwash location for the food prep area.

Ensure staff are properly instructed on sanitizing the sink compartment after handwashing / before dish washing if both activities are taking place in the three compartment sink, or install a (pre approved by MCDEH) handwash sink in the main cafeteria kitchen space for use by staff. Recommend posting reminder sign above three compartment sink to remind staff to sanitize compartments immediately prior to dish washing and sanitizing actiivies as long as the three compartment sink is also used as the required handwashing location in this space.
