Pho 64 – 77

Inspector’s Notes: Cooked beef and chicken are sitting on counter. Even though the chef reheats food per customer order, the food has to be hot held (135 degrees Fahrenheit or above) or cold held (41 degrees Fahrenheit or below ). Chicken was 112 degrees Fahrenheit and the beef was 90 degrees Fahrenheit. When I asked the chef how long has it been since he cook this food, he replied 7 minutes.

There is a container of lettuce sitting on counter across from grill not under temperature control. Also a container of shrimp with ice inside, but it’s not reaching proper cold hold temperatures.

When I asked manager about spray bottle near 3 compartment sink, he said he used it to soak his metal containers that has burned food stuck on it. He threw the original bottle away, so I’m not sure what the exact chemical is inside bottle.

Manager stated that they do not use commercial dishwasher. The only use the 3 compartment sink to wash dishes. Educated manager on time as a public health. I informed him that he must have a written procedure for all foods that he plans to leave on counter if he doesn’t want to keep food under temperature control.
