Comments

A routine inspection was completed, the following observations were made:
- Coolers 4C or colder; freezers -25C; hot holding units above 60C; thermometers present; and temperatures monitored daily.
- 3-comp dishwashing sink had Quats sanitizer at 200ppm.
- Cloth buckets had Quats sanitizer at 200ppm.
- All foods stored in food grade containers; covered; labeled; date coded; foods stored in groups; and foods stored 6" off the floor on shelves, racks, or pallets.
- No expired foods in use or for sale. FIFO rules being followed.
- FoodSafe certified staff present. The owner and one other staff member possesses FoodSafe Level 2 certificate.
- General sanitation level is good. The exhaust canopy was professionally cleaned in March 2022 and next service due in October 2022. The exhaust filters are washed and sanitized at least once a week by staff.
- Found some debris and food on the floor, along the base of walls under equipment (coolers, freezers, fryers) and shelves. The owner explained that every month, a contracted cleaning company, completes a deep clean of the premises. Equipment is moved away from walls (especially in the frying area) and the walls and floors are cleaned beneath and behind the equipment. Increase the frequency or ensure staff are reaching and cleaning these areas every day to remove food and debris, to prevent attracting pests.
- No signs of pests. Pest monitoring is in place, a company is contracted on a monthly basis.

**A follow-up inspection will be completed on May 9/22 to ensure all concerns have been corrected.**
