Food Facility - Full Prep

Routine Inspection
02. Food safety certification, food handler card compliance

Conditions Observed: Food Handler Card was not available for the employee present at the time of the inspection. Please ensure that all staff obtain food handler cards within 30 days of hire and have these available for review during future inspections; thank you.

ROACHY SAYS:

“Food facilities that prepare, handle, or serve non-prepackaged potentially hazardous food, shall have an owner or employee who has passed an aproved food safety certification examination. Food handlers that prepare, handle, or serve non-prepackaged potentially hazardous food, shall obtain a valid Food Handler Card within 30 days after date of hire. (113947.1-113947.5, 113948)”

09. Time as public health control; procedures and records.

Conditions Observed: Time as a Public Health control was being used for prepped, uncooked pizzas on a rolling rack next to the prep table, but there was no TPHC labeling or documented process. Per PIC, pizzas are kept here for convenience and are never left out for more than an hour. Discussed TPHC requirements and provided educational handout. PIC determined that rather than establishing a formal TPHC process, it would be simpler to change this practice by keeping pizzas in the walk-in and only pulling out one pizza at a time as needed. This was corrected on site: the pizza rack was returned to the walk-in before the conclusion of the inspection; thank you.

ROACHY SAYS:

“When time as a public health control is used, the following procedures shall be observed: food items shall be marked to indicate four hours past the time when the food was removed from temperature control, food shall be served or discarded within the four hour time limit. Written procedures shall be maintained in the food facility and made available to the enforcement agency upon request, that ensure compliance with this section and section 114002, for food that is prepared, cooked, and refrigerated before time is used as a public health control. Time only may not be used in Licensed health care facilities, public school cafeterias, or private school cafeterias. (114000)”
