(WSYR-TV) — The Onondaga County Health Department released its inspection reports for restaurants checked during the week of June 5 to June 11.
One restaurant, Denny’s on 7873 Brewerton Road in Cicero, failed its inspection with four critical violations and six other violations.
Critical Violation: Improper cooling and refrigerated storage of potentially hazardous foods. (#5A)
This violation was found twice.
Code Requirement: Potentially hazardous foods were not kept below 45°F during cold holding, except smoked fish, which is required to be at 38 °F
Inspector Findings: Around one quart of pancake batter was found sitting on a prep table on the cook line at 55°F. The manager says the batter is made by mixing pasteurized eggs, buttermilk, water, and dry pancake mix. Management reported that the mix was made a half hour prior to inspection and not stored properly under refrigeration.
A half-pound slice of ham was noted in a flip top cooler at 49-51°F and management shared that it was likely in the cooler since the night prior. Other items in the cooler were noted at 44-46°F and the cooler operation is possibly unreliable.
Critical Violation: Improper cooling and refrigerated storage storage of potentially hazardous foods. (#5C)
Code Requirement: Potentially hazardous foods are not stored under refrigeration except during necessary preparation or approved precooling procedures.
Inspector Findings: Thirteen individual servings of cut up potatoes which are normally frozen were recorded at 94°F on the cook line. The inspector said that there was no explanation as to why or how long they have been there.
Critical Violation: Improper hot holding of potentially hazardous foods. (#6B)
Code Requirement: Enough hot holding equipment was not present, properly designed, maintained, and operated to keep hot foods above 140°F
Inspector Findings: The hot hold on the cook line was noted to be operating at 130°F when at maximum heat level, when the minimum is 140°F. Several foods were out of temperature for an unknown time as well, including 4 cups of brown gravy at 123°F, 2 cups of queso at 110°F, and 2 cups of mashed potatoes at 122°F.
