Comments: Sanitizer concentration in sani-sink did not register on test strip. Maintain sanitizer level at 100 ppm QAC for sink. All employees must wear hair restraints.

One did not have toilet paper. Both had foul smell and broken wall tiles. Supply restrooms and keep clean and in good repair. The tiles by drain and wall of walk-in cooler (on outside) must be repaired as brick material is visible and absorbs water and dirt/food.
