RESTROOMS: Initially, hot water for both restrooms measured between 68-80 degrees Fahrenheit even with the water running for more than 10 minutes. More than an hour later, the water temperature did not increase. As these restrooms are shared between both facilities, an employee from Arco AMPM was contacted and after 15 minutes of trying to figure out why there was no hot water delivery when the water heater was working fine and delivering at least 130 degrees Fahrenheit water to the handwashing sink in the Arco kitchen, it was discovered that when a coffee machine was on, there would be no hot water in the restrooms. When the coffee machine was turned off, at least 120 degrees Fahrenheit water was detected in both restrooms. Evaluate what is causing this unusual problem and repair as necessary. Both facilities have been notified of this problem. Suzzane Rolande 0102 FOOD ESTAB. W/FOOD PREP 50-149 SEATS

6-03-2019 When time only, rather than time and temperature is used as a public health control, records and documentation must be maintained. (114000) 7.00 If food is found in the temperature danger zone due to improper implementation of time as a public health control, discard all food that is out of acceptable temperature ranges. Time only, rather than time in conjunction with temperature, may be used as the public health control for a working supply of potentially hazardous food before cooking or for ready-to-eat potentially hazardous food that is displayed or held for service for immediate consumption, only when the following requirements are met:
(1) The food shall be marked or otherwise identified to indicate the time that is four hours past the point in time when the food is removed from temperature control.
(2) The food shall be cooked and served, served if ready-to-eat, or discarded within four hours from the point in time when the food is removed from temperature control.
(3) The food in unmarked containers or packages marked to exceed a four-hour limit shall be discarded.
(4) Written procedures shall be maintained in the food facility and made available to the enforcement agency upon request, that ensures proper cooling if the food is prepared, cooked, and refrigerated before time is used as a public health control.

Cheese was voluntarily discarded during inspection. If food is not under temperature control make sure to attach proper time control labels to all food items. 0102 FOOD ESTAB.

Destroy all contaminated, adulterated and spoiled food. SWEET TEA CONTAINERS IN THE CUSTOMER SELF-SERVICE AREA: One sweet tea container had a black lid that did not fit tightly causing the lid to tilt at an angle and the tea inside to not be fully covered from potential contamination. Provide a proper fitting lid or replace the container. The other sweet tea container had a proper fitting lid. Secure both container lids (locks, zip ties, etc.) before putting in the customer area to prevent possible tampering (one employee reported finding napkins inside the tea containers in the past). 0102 FOOD ESTAB.
