Violations/ comments: a few food containers located on the clean utensil rack were found with food residue. Food contact surfaces must be cleaned to sight and touch to prevent contamination. Those observed dirty were removed immediately to be rewashed and the manager was notified. Several food items were found above 41 degrees Fahrenheit inside of the walk-in cooler. White chocolate 1 percent milk creamer and omelet mix were found at 44 degrees Fahrenheit. The food items closer to fans were at 41 degrees Fahrenheit and were removed from the cooler to another cooler. The food items above 41 degrees Fahrenheit were discarded, according to management. The cooler built-in thermometer was reading at 47 degrees Fahrenheit. The person in charge scheduled to have the cooler repaired immediately. Approximately 1.5 hours later the cooler was back down to 40 degrees Fahrenheit and the food items were reading at 41 degrees Fahrenheit. Written procedures for Hardees Veggie Sandwich Station were unavailable and no record of initial temperatures were available for their time as public health control procedures. If time without temperature control is used as the public health control up to a maximum of four hours the food shall have an initial temperature of 41 degrees Fahrenheit or less marked to indicate the four hour discard time and served within the four hour time frame. The chemical sanitizing concentration for the dishes were too low. Concentration of the sanitizing solution must be accurate and used according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Solution must be approximately 200 parts per million. The sanitizer unit was not dispensing enough sanitizer through the tubes. Management called and scheduled to have the unit repaired. The sanitizer will have to be adjusted manually and tested to ensure proper concentrations. The following areas were found with soil accumulation: area behind the soda station by window in Hardees, the cabinets and drawers at food station on retail store side of facility. Non-food contact surfaces must be cleaned at a frequency necessary to prevent soil accumulation. Process Review: the person in charge is trained in food safety however, several critical violations were present therefore, a re-inspection is scheduled to ensure these violations are corrected. Thank you.
