FC08 - Improper Sanitizer Concentration/Method (CA Retail Food Code 114099, 114101, 114117)
At the main cook's line, observed an employee wipe the food contact surfaces with a wet wiping cloth without the aid of a
sanitizer. A sanitizer bucket was set up, measuring 200 ppm quaternary ammonium. Discontinue this practice. This
facility is using 150 ppm quaternary ammonium sanitizer according to the package label. Each day prior to preparation,
set up a sanitizer bucket with either 100 ppm chlorine, 200 ppm quaternary ammonium or 25 ppm iodine to hold the
wiping cloths. Store the cloths inside the sanitizer solution when not in immediate use. When a towel is needed, wring it
out, use it, and then immediately return it to the solution between uses. The violation was corrected on site by an
employee sanitized the food contact surface with the approved quaternary ammonium sanitizer.
