Violation Explanation

Official Report Wording, Item #05

Accurate, conspicuous thermometers in refrigerators/hot holding cabinets. (1 pt.)


Maintaining foods at safe temperatures is critical in controlling the growth of disease-causing bacteria. Should the temperature of a refrigerator exceed 41F or a hot holding cabinet be less than 135F, bacterial growth can occur. To allow food establishments to monitor the temperature of equipment, conspicuous thermometers must be provided in refrigerators and hot holding cabinets.
