15 Food separated and protected 3-304.11: (A) FOOD shall only contact surfaces of EQUIPMENT and UTENSILS that are cleaned. The probe used for checking foods is stored on top of an oven and between packages of breading. The top of the oven is visibly soiled with dust and debris. Any item used for contact with RTE foods should be stored so as to remain free of possible contamination. Another probe was observed in the facility with a covering for the probe section and should be used to ensure protection of the food contact parts.
22 Proper cold holding temperatures 3-501.16: (A) (2) TCS FOOD shall be maintained at 41F or less. (B) EGGS not treated to destroy Salmonellae shall be stored at 45F or less.

Meats observed in this manner include corned beef, turkey and ham with temperatures ranging from 45-48. These items were discarded during the inspection to correct. Sauces requiring temperature control are currently stored in bottles in the prep cooler with the tops of the bottles above the cooler. Corporate policy is for the bottles to be maintained at only 3/4 full to ensure that they remain in the area of the cooler under temperature control. Sauces were observed completely full in their bottles and with internal temperatures ranging from 48-60 degrees. Sauces were only brought out of the coolers during the prep period this morning and will be discarded by 3:30pm today. Proper time control procedures and paperwork will be completed today for these items.

Items were discarded during the inspection to correct. 2) Multiple items in the walk in cooler were observed with only a day of the week marked for date marking.
