18 1.50 Proper cooking time & temperatures No No Yes No No 3-401.11 Cook raw animal foods to required temperatures. Do not interrupt the cooking process without approved procedures. -P. Observed pans of pork belly placed into WIC for cooling with internal temperatures of 101f. Employee noted that the pork belly is blanched and quickly flash fried and then cooled in WIC and then later removed, cut into portions and braised. This is a non-continuous cooking process which requires regulatory approval. Through review of written procedures, pork belly must be blanched, fried, cut, and fully cooked during the braising process prior to placing into WIC to cool. Follow written company procedures when cooking pork belly to ensure the pork is fully cooked before cooling and then re-heating. CDI- pork removed from WIC and processed/cooked.
20 1.50 Proper cooling time & temperatures No No Yes Yes No 3-501.14(A) Quickly cool cooked foods within 2 hours from 135F to 70F; and within a total of 6 hours from 135F to 41F. -P.

Observed various items holding above 41f in flip top portions of line coolers including dumplings, raw shell eggs, wontons, and more. CDI - items allowed to remain in use until end of 4 hour time and then discard. Observed fried tofu strips and fried duck skins holding at room temperature without use of time control. CDI - discarded. EHS strongly recommends using time control procedure for these items as coolers observed to be working properly, however, ambient air temperature around line extremely high. Some improvement noted in overall cold holding as equipment was working properly or was marked out of use and empty. REPEAT. Establishment remains under RCP for cold holding with additional items added as they were noted out of compliance today. No escalation to permit action at this time. EHS recommends reducing overall kitchen ambient air temperature to assist with cold holding. EHS observed during inspection various foods including multiple sauces and oils both house made and from corporate central production distribution located in Orlando, FL - in use at expo and at cook lines which were holding at room temperature. EHS unable to determine during inspection if some of the in use sauces and oils are shelf stable or if these items require temperature control based on in house procedures or on product labeling/packaging. At this time, these products must be held at 41f or lower or use a 4 hour time control process until documentation can be provided to the department that demonstrates the products are non-TCS. EHS provided additional copies of TPHC document to establishment during inspection. EHS will contact above store leadership to request additional information on these products.

PIC noted they do use ice bath for these items, however, they were not fully cooled to 41f before sealing with lids and placing into the WIC. Modify this process to include reduced volume, metal containers, and possibly ice wands to assist with cooling of these items to 41f before placing into sealed containers for storage. REPEAT - establishment is placed on Risk Control Plan for cooling methods during inspection today.
