Updated: Jun 21, 2021
The term 'TCS' is often used to refer to food that either requires temperature or time control for food safety and 7-day date marking. So let the games begin and test your knowledge.
Whole butter, salted or not, is considered a time/temperature control for safety food (TCS). Whole butter needs to be held at 41F or less, 135F or greater, or put it on a timing rule to not exceed 4 hours out of temperature control. This applies to tempering butter for baking as well.
