Other violations the inspector made note of were employees drinking where pork was being cooked, hand cleaners not provided at kitchen sinks, food not holding temperatures, stored food items that were undated, chemicals stored near food on dry storage racks, unlabeled food containers, cloths not stored in proper sanitizing stations and failure to provide proper lighting in the kitchen.

The inspector also noted that the “person in charge failed to demonstrate knowledge by answering certified food safety manager questions, such as what temperature should food cold holding be at.”

According to the inspection report, Tom, Dick and Hank did not post its previous inspection score, which was an 86/B on Jan. 27, 2017.

“We’re in the process of getting all of that taken care of,” manager Kimberly Johnson said Wednesday. “We’re cleaning everything up this week. We needed to get our equipment updated and reserviced.”
