What's wrong with this picture?
These are actual photographs from different inspections in our county. Can you see what the problems are?
1. ↓ Garlic in oil.TCS food?
2. ↓ Storage area.
3. ↓ Combat Max Roach Killing Gel Syringe in the kitchen shelf over food prep area.
4. ↓ Pan under stove burners.
5. ↓ Clean equipment storage area?
1. Garlic in oil. Here’s the deal. Garlic is a time/temperature control for safety (TCS) food when in oil.
*Raw or roasted garlic remaining in oil - TCS (41F and 7-day shelf life)
*Garlic oil - If garlic removed/strained, oil clear, no particles, no longer a TCS food.
* Dried/powdered herbs (except garlic) in oil all non-TCS * Fresh herbs stored in oil - TCS
* Fresh herbs removed/strained - non-TCS
This product below would be considered a TCS food when rehydrated since we aren’t sure exactly how it was dried and there may have been a heat treatment.
2. So we have torch fuel, window cleaner and gallons of bleach over an open bag of sugar.
3. Yikes! No operator is allowed to do their own pest management. This was even scarier because it was on a shelf in the kitchen.
4. Speaking of pests… yes, those are rat feces on the foil under the stove burners.
5. That is a handwashing sink. The manager was perplexed as to why someone would put the equipment there. Possibly to dry?
That’s all folks!
