Routine Inspection

This is a major, repeat violation requiring reinspection. Please have the unit serviced and provide evidence of repair (e.g., service invoice) and evidence that the unit can hold foods at required temperatures (e.g., photo of temperature measurement) to your inspector by the comply-by date listed on this report in order to avoid the need for an in-person reinspection.
