Stewart Conservation Camp, kitchen, 1721 E. Snyder Ave., score: 7, grade: A. The inspector noted an excessive number of flies in the facility. The exit door of the kitchen wasn’t closing properly, preventing adequate pest control. Test strips weren’t readily available to measure sanitizer concentrations. The inspector also made the following recommendations: don’t use cardboard to stand on at the prep sink; remove cobwebbing on ceiling and on light standards in the kitchen; the floor of the walk-in cooler must be cleaned and sanitized on a more frequent basis. Milk was observed on the floor of the walk-in. Additionally, lights weren’t properly protected in case the glass bulbs break. End caps were needed on the overhead light tubes in the kitchen and food storage area, as well as light standard shields for all overhead light standards. Potentially hazardous food, particularly bagged milk, was being held at temperatures that support micro-organism growth.
China East, 1810 Highway 50 E., score: 9, grade: A. An inadequate amount of chlorine residual was found on dishes following the mechanical dishwasher’s final rinse. Beef, chicken, egg rolls and other products were being held at unsafe temperatures and weren’t properly labeled to verify how long they’d been outside of temperature control. Ready-to-eat potentially hazardous food wasn’t date marked. Nonfood-contact surfaces were dirty. Grease and food debris needed to be cleared from the ventilation hood grates. The floor and surfaces behind the kitchen line equipment also needed to be cleaned. Warewashing equipment was inadequate, damaged or otherwise in need of repair. Staff needed to check the dishwashing unit daily with test strips and clean the filter. The coving under the dishwasher needed caulking. The cutting board surfaces were excessively cracked, cut or chipped.
