35. Warewashing: installed, maintained, used, Adequate Means to measure sanitizer
Conditions Observed: Facility uses Sani-T-10 (QT) sanitizer at 3-comp sink, and sodium hypochlorite (CL) solution in mechanical warewash machine. No test strips were available to measure either type of sanitizer. Also, no chlorine was detected after machine sanitizing cycle, despite being hooked up, holding “sanitizer prime” button, and running machine three times. Please service/repair/maintain machine to ensure it provides a minimum of 50 ppm CL during sanitizing cycle. Obtain test strips for both CL and Sani-T-10 and instruct staff and renters in proper use. Use 3-compartment sink with Sani-T-10 sanitizer for sanitizing dishes/utensils until warewash machine is repaired; thank you.
