October 10

Kentucky Fried Chicken, 342 W. Court St. Follow-up inspection. Violations/comments: The pop nozzles are now clean to sight and touch however, several food containers and cookie sheets were still found with food residue and stored on the clean dish rack stacked while wet. This is a repeat violation. Food contact surfaces must be cleaned to sight and touch to prevent contamination. Also, the sanitizer and dish soap bags were both found empty. Soap must be provided and after cleaning food contact surfaces such as food containers and utensils, they must be sanitized.

Miami Trace Middle, 3800 State Rte 41 NW. Consultation and Follow-up inspections. Violations/comments: after consulting with the Environmental director and the person in charge, it has come to the realization that the precooked food items, such as the pizza, hamburger, green beans and refried beans are all food that has been commercially processed and packaged in a processing plant that is inspected by regulatory authority, therefore must be heated to a temperature of at least 135 degrees Fahrenheit when being reheated for hot hold. This means that the facility was not actually in violation as previously mentioned on the Oct. 1 inspected report. It is recommended however, to reheat these processed foods to a temperature greater than 135 degrees Fahrenheit to make up for the heat loss during transfer to hot holding equipment.
