Morano’s three compartment sink was not installed properly. The drain went
into the “funnels” and the plumber had to come and redo it. Sandwiches sol at the store are pre‐
made and kept in refrigeration. They will be doing gift/food baskets.
‐Dunkin Donuts had problems with their refrigeration;
‐Village Pasta & Pizza had issues with their hand wash sink. I had to go over and
explain everything to him again, and to the workers as well.
‐Flirt Sushi’s food manager’s license expired and he must be re‐certified by
January 2nd, 2010 which is State law.
‐Dairy Queen, for some odd reasons, has tiny little flies. There is nothing in the
front of the store, only in the rear, and we don’t know exactly where they are coming from. I
believe it could come from water damage because Asian Cuisine has a few as well. A sample of
the insect was brought to Rutgers Extension Services and were told that it can come from sinks or
drains, and probably is water related. Same is not near the food and is being monitored.
