Center did not have a food certified person on site at all times of the day. Director and owner “thought” it was only required at lunchtime. They did not take the temperature of food upon delivery from vendor, nor did they log this. The vendor placed some boxes of fruit on the floor, rather than the required minimum of 6 inches above the floor. The fridge and freezer did not have a log noting that the daily temperature had been observed, person serving food did not wear a hair net. Classroom fridges did not have thermometers on the doors as required; incoming bottles and sippy cups were not labeled and dated as required. In this scenario the center received the following violations:
Required food protection procedures were not implemented at time of inspection. Holder of food protection certificate was not on site during hours of food preparation activity.
Violations requiring immediate correction (Public Health Hazards) 47.61 (a)
At time of inspection it was determined that child care service failed to take any and all necessary action to eliminate potential hazards. Violations requiring correction within two weeks (Critical Violations) 47.57 (b)
If you do not know what “food protection procedures” were not implemented here, you might consider hiring a knowledgeable consultant to explain these to you.
