Violation ExplanationOfficial Report Wording, Item #19
Wash and rinse water clean and hot. (2 pts.)
PUBLIC HEALTH REASON
Warewashing water temperatures are a critical factor effecting how well dishwashing detergents work to remove organic matter from equipment and utensils. If wash water temperatures are too low, dish detergents can not effectively dissolve and remove oils and animal fats from dirty equipment and utensils. Wash and rinse water must be kept clean. Equipment and utensils washed and rinsed in heavily soiled water results in soiled and inadequately sanitized surfaces.
