                        Potentially Hazardous Foods

Potentially hazardous foods are high protein foods that are capable of
supporting rapid and progressive growth of infectious or disease causing micro-
organisms. These foods include any food that consists in whole or in part of:
     milk or milk products,
     shell eggs,
     meats, poultry, fish, shellfish,
     edible crustacean (shrimp, lobster, crab, etc.),
     baked or boiled potatoes,
     tofu and other soy-protein products,
     plant foods that have been heat treated,
     raw seed sprouts, or synthetic ingredients.

Store potentially hazardous foods cold (at or below 41 degrees Fahrenheit)
or hot (at or above 140 degrees Fahrenheit) to prevent the growth of disease
causing bacteria.Provide a food thermometer for monitoring food temperatures.

Adequate equipment must be provided for maintaining safe food storage temperatures,
e.g., refrigerators, ice chest, steam tables, chafing dishes with sterno, etc.

Hazardous foods may be removed from the above specified safe food storage
temperatures for the purpose of preparation for not more than two hours during any
preparation step.

Sushi must be served within two hours of preparation.

Prevent cross-contamination of foods.
     Store raw meats separate from cooked foods or produce at all times.
     Never store raw meats above cooked foods or produce.
     Clean and sanitize cutting boards with a 200 ppm Chlorine bleach solution after
     cutting raw meats and before cutting cooked meats and produce.
     Clean and sanitize all utensils after handling raw meats and before handling
     cooked meats and produce.
     Keep raw meats separate from cooked meats during grilling.
     Wash hands after handling raw meats.

Prevent droplet contamination of foods by providing sneeze guards.
     Plastic wrap or clear dome serving dishes can also be used to prevent droplet
     contamination. Where these methods are not practical, foods must be displayed at
     least 24 inches from the front table edge to create a distance barrier.
     Provide tongs, disposable gloves or single service tissues for handling self-service
     non-packaged foods.
Keep drink ice pure.
     Never store drink containers, e.g., milk cartons and orange juice bottles, in drink
     ice.
     Store drink ice at least six inches off the ground.
     Never use ice previously used for food storage as drink ice.

Provide a utensil washing sink or setup for multiple use serving utensils.
     A 100 ppm chlorine residual is required in the final rinse solution.

Store all foods at least 6 inches off the ground.
     Provide accessible hand wash facilities equipped with liquid soap and paper towels.
     If a hand wash sink is not available, a gravity flow hand wash station may be
      substituted. The following activities should always be followed by thorough hand
      washing:
         o Using the restroom
         o Using a handkerchief or tissue.
         o Handling raw food.
         o Touching areas of the body, such as ears, nose, or hair, or scratching
             anywhere on the body.
         o Touching unclean equipment and work surfaces.
         o Smoking or chewing tobacco.
         o Eating or drinking beverages.

Ensure that food handlers clean and bandage cuts or burns. Provide plastic gloves to
prevent contamination of foods.
