The facility shall actively protect its foods to prevent any sources of bacteria growth or contamination.

This is a follow-up inspection: See the previous inspection here.

  • Critical: 3717-1-03.4(F)(1)(b) / Time/temperature controlled for safety food – cold holding.
    • Critical Repeat Observed diced tomatoes at 49 F, sauce souffle cups at 55 F, Lettuce at 52 F, and Gorgonzola at 50 F in the salad and dumpster fry prep coolers. MAINTAIN ALL COLD FOODS AT 41F OR BELOW TO PREVENT BACTERIA GROWTH. During the inspection temperature abused foods were discarded.
  • Critical: 3717-1-03.4(F)(1)(b) / Time/temperature controlled for safety food – cold holding.
    • Critical Observed dumpster sauce, ranch, and diced tomatoes in the sides/prep cooler across from the fryers were holding: 60, 64, and 48 respectively. During the inspection these items were discarded. FACILITY SHALL MAINTAIN ALL COLD ITEMS AT 41 F OR BELOW TO PREVENT TEMPERATURE ABUSE. Discussed using time as public health control or otherwise maintaining temperatures. Facility replaced the foods with deep pans on ice. Observed a container of garlic spread stored at room temperature despite stating keep refrigerated. Provide proof that the food is shelf stable or maintain it at the proper temperature of 41 F or below.
  • Critical: 3717-1-05.3(E) / Sewage and other liquid waste: Conveying sewage.
    • Critical Observed that the storm sewer near the dumpster pad was completely covered in a thick black layer of debris that was caked on. Facility shall ensure that its grease, food debris, and any grey water is being properly disposed of.
  • Non-critical: 3717-1-04.4(A)(2) / Equipment components kept intact, tight, and adjusted
    • Observed that the prep cooler was frozen up at the facility. Maintain equipment in good repair to prevent it from causing temperature abuse to foods.
  • Non-critical: 3717-1-05.4(O) / Using drain plugs.
    • Observed some wet debris underneath one of the dumpsters. Contact dumpster company, all dumpsters shall have a proper drain plug to prevent any grey water from escaping and going into the nearby storm sewer.

Comments: Received complaint from the City of Circleville stating that the dumpsters are leaking into the storm drain. At the time of inspection it was observed that the facility does not have an outside grease dumpster as it has a grease system where the old grease is pulled into a tank outside the building and removed directly from the tank. The staff was adamant that they were not dumping anything down the storm sewer and there was only some staining around the dumpster pad, however there was a large amount of staining and debris on the sewer grate cover indicating that trash or grease was making it to the storm sewer. ROOSTERS MUST PROPERLY CLEAN THE STORM SEWER AND MAINTAIN THE AREA CLEAN AND FREE FROM ANY GREY WATER FROM THE DUMPSTERS. Contact the dumpster company to ensure drain plugs are inserted in all dumpsters. 

At the time of inspection a follow up was conducted for the cold holding temperatures in the prep coolers at the facility. There continues to be a cold holding problem for foods in these coolers as they were holding approximately 48-55F at the time of inspection. All cold foods must be maintained at 41F or below to prevent bacterial growth. As there have been repeated critical violations for the prep coolers at this facility the facility must work to correct these issues prior to the next inspection or it will enter the enforcement program. The inspector discussed different methods to help with temperature control including using iced pans, metal pans, or time as public health control. The cold holding issues must be corrected prior to re inspection.
