2-28-2019 Potentially hazardous foods shall be held at or below 41°/ 45°F or at or above 135°F. (113996, 113998, 114037, 114343(a)) 7.00 Hold potentially hazardous foods either at or above 135°F or at or below 41°F. Hold the following potentially hazardous foods at 45°F: raw shell eggs, unshucked live molluscan shellfish, pasteurized milk and pasteurized milk products in original, sealed containers. Potentially hazardous foods held for dispensing in a serving line or a salad bar (not in a display case) may be held at 45°F or less during periods not to exceed 12 hours in any 24-hour period. Discard all potentially hazardous food that has been out of an approved time and temperature range. (1) Observed the temperature of approximately six egg rolls on the hot roller unit were measured at 110-124°F. Hold all hot potentially hazardous foods at or above 135°F. Out of temperature items were voluntarily discarded and denatured. Monitor irregularly shaped items being heated / displayed on the roller units, to ensure even heating is occurring, and that items are being maintained at or above 135°F at all times. Corrected during inspection.

(2) Observed the temperature of the nacho cheese and chili sauces in the heated countertop dispensing unit were measured at 108-119°F. Open bags immediately discarded. Investigation shows staff had placed new bags on top of partially used open bags inside the dispenser approximately 2 hours prior without preheating the new bags, resulting in a significant thermal drop in the hot bags that were already in the unit. Ensure commercially prepackaged PHF (potentially hazardous food) items that are intended to be served hot, are reheated to not less than 135°F within 2 hours, and are then maintained at or above 135°F at all times to prevent bacterial growth. Corrected during inspection.
