• Kids Learning Place & Head Start Troy, 1849 Town Park Dr., Troy: Standard Inspection.

Comments: Facility in good operation and condition at the time of inspection. PIC knowledgeable in food safety practices.

• Angela’s Circle of Friends Childcare, 2910 Stone Circle, Troy: Standard Inspection.

Equipment not approved by a recognized testing agency. Observed a residential microwave and chest freezer in the facility.

Non-food contact surface(s) not cleaned at the required frequency. Observed food residue and splatter build-up inside of microwave.

Nov. 19

• Tipp City Middle School, 555 N. Hyatt St., Tipp City: Follow-Up Inspection.

Time/temperature controlled for safety food — cold holding. TCS foods not being cold held at the proper temperature. At time of inspection, walk-in cooler was observed holding foods at 45F. PIC stated the condenser unit was new. Upon departure, foods were beginning to cool down (~43F). Recommended calling the installer of the new cooling unit to ensure proper adjustment and function per manufacturer’s specifications.

Comments: This was a follow-up inspection to check on the status of the walk-in cooler based on yesterday’s standard/CCP inspection. At the time of re-inspection, the walk-in unit was observed holding TCS foods well below 41F (internal temps).

Temperature range of food products tempted at this time were found to be between 31-37F. The kitchen staff had contacted maintenance and the temperature gauge of the unit had been tweaked and turned down.

No issues were present at this time.

Continue to monitor the temperatures within the unit. Also, ensure the electronic ambient gauge for the unit is not being used to gauge the temperature of the food products. This gauge is in the coldest part of the unit (near the condensing unit).

Recommended taking internal temperatures of foods to ensure TCS food products are holding at or below 41F.

• Randall Residence Memory Care Kitchen, 6400 S. Co. Rd. 25A, Tipp City: Standard Inspection.

Comments: Little food was observed on-site at the time of inspection.

Food is prepared and brought over/transported from the level IV kitchen and hot held for service.

Operation satisfactory — no violations noted at this time.

• LT Ball Intermediate School, 575 N. Hyatt St., Tipp City: Follow-Up Inspection.

Repeat: Non-food contact surfaces of equipment are unclean. Observed dust build up on the hoods above the stove and ovens. Ensure equipment is cleaned and maintained as clean to site and touch.

The following violation(s) have been corrected since the last inspection:

Manual and mechanical warewashing equipment, chemical sanitization (other) — proper sanitization achieved.

The license holder did not demonstrate achieved sanitization while using a solution other than chlorine, quaternary ammonium or iodine. Dish machine observed not adequately operating in accordance with manufacturer specifications at the time of inspection. According to the PIC, dishware is being cleaned and sanitized manually using alternative warewashing methods.

Equipment components kept intact, tight, and adjusted.

Equipment components are not intact, tight or properly adjusted. Dish machine observed to be out of service and in disrepair. Ensure equipment is maintained, operating, and functioning in accordance with manufacturer specifications.

Comments: This was a follow-up inspection to check on the status of the dish machine. At yesterday’s inspection, the cleaning and sanitizing methods were unclear so today’s follow-up was performed to ensure proper sanitation and disinfection of food contact surfaces is taking place within the food service operation (FSO).

The dish machine is both a high and low-temp. Currently it is calibrated as a low-temp sanitizing dish machine (chlorine). The machine was primed and tested to be dispensing sanitizer at around 100ppm. Ensure the dish machine is being tested frequently as there are no means of back up for washing, rinsing, and sanitizing (facility does not have a 3-compartment sink set-up).

At the time of re-inspection, the facility was observed in good condition and the dish machine was properly functioning per manufacturer’s specifications.

Nov. 22

• Glacier View Coffee, 20 N. High St., Covington: Standard Inspection.

Critical: Presence of live insects, rodents, and other pests. Observed a large amount of gnats throughout the facility. Pests shall be treated by a licensed pest control company to control and minimize presence on premises.

Corrected During Inspection: Wiping cloths air-dried improperly. Sanitizer cloth observed lying on counter and not stored submerged in sanitizer. Upon informing PIC, cloth was placed in sanitizer in 3-bay sink. Informed PIC that sanitizer would have to be replaced prior to washing dishes in that same 3-bay.

Improper use and/or maintenance of wiping cloths. No sanitizer buckets observed on-site. Recommended obtaining at least one sanitizer bucket for storage of wiping cloths.

Single-service and single-use articles not protected from contamination. Obseved single use forks stored without protective packaging. Recommend either using packaged single use articles or implementing a method of protecting the articles from contamination.

Comments: Observed gnats throughout the facility. A licensed pest control company will need to come out and treat for the gnats.

• Taco Bell, 1150 W. Main St., Tipp City: Standard/Critical Control Point Inspection.

Corrected During Inspection; Repeat: Utensils and equipment contacting non-TCS foods not cleaned at required frequency. Observed pop nozzles in both the drive thru and dining dispensers with mold-like substance build-up on them. Upon informing PIC, the nozzles were pulled for cleaning.

Repeat: Equipment components are not intact, tight, or properly adjusted. In the walk-in freezer, observed build up of ice on the ceiling, blower piping, and top storage rack. Ensure the unit is serviced so it operates in line with manufacturer’s specifications and does not accumulate ice.

Equipment components are not intact, tight, or properly adjusted. Observed leaking pipe attached to the “Powersoak” compartment of the 3-bay sink. Observed slight mold-like build up on the wall indicating the leak may have been present for some time. Repair leaking line so equipment is maintained intact, tight, and adjusted.

Non-food contact surfaces of equipment are unclean. Observed dust build up on the hoods above the friers. Ensure non-food contact surfaces are maintained clean to sight and touch.

Facility not maintained clean. General build up and debris observed under storage racks in kitchen and behind equipment/hard to reach areas. Increase cleaning frequency as necessary to maintain the facility clean to sight and touch.

• Subway Covington, 11 N. High St., Covington: Standard Inspection.

Repeat: Nonfood-contact surfaces not easily cleanable. Observed storage racks in the walk-in cooler to be starting to rust and flake. The surfaces are no longer smooth and easily cleanable. Resurface or replace to ensure the surfaces are smooth and easily cleanable.

Facility not maintained clean. Observed debris and residue on the floor of the walk-in cooler. Recommend a deep clean to ensure the surfaces are maintained clean to sight and touch.

• Cassanos #49, 975 W. Main St., Tipp City: Follow-Up Inspection.

Repeat: Facility not maintained clean. Floors and walls throughout the facility were in need of a deep cleaning due to food splatter, residue, and build-up.

The following violation(s) have been corrected since the last inspection:

Backflow prevention — air gap.

Insufficient air gap between the flood rim and the water supply inlet. Facility installed a new ice machine and soda fountain. The new ice machine drain line is not air gapped to prevent a back siphonage.

Comments: Re-inspection to check to ensure an air-gap was placed on the drain line from the soda beverage’s ice machine.

At the time of follow-up, the air-gap was not present. Upon informing the PIC, an air-gap was provided by trimming the drain line such that it was above the flood rim level of the floor drain.

Critical violation corrected on-site.
