Inspector’s Comment: “I was told that they switch the broccoli and lettuce every 20 minutes. I recommend that they used time as a public health so they can continue to leave broccoli and lettuce on counter so they wont be written up for improper cold holding. I left time as a public health sheet and explained how it works. Please pay for permit within 24-48 hours.”
