Violation ExplanationOfficial Report Wording, Item #21
Wiping cloths saturated with 50 ppm chlorine, 200 ppm quaternary ammonia or 12.5 ppm iodine. (1 pt.)
PUBLIC HEALTH REASON
Counter tops, work tables, cutting boards, and other food contact surfaces are required to be wiped down constantly to keep them free of food spill. If spills are left to accumulate, disease-causing microorganisms can survive on contaminated surfaces. Foods, equipment and utensils that come into contact with these dirty surfaces will also become contaminated. To prevent this contamination, wiping cloths must be saturated with a sanitizing solution of adequate strength to kill microorganisms that may be on these surfaces.
