Comments: Container of cooked chicken was observed between two containers of raw chicken. Ready-to-eat chicken was partially covered. Moved to top shelf. Cooked foods must be kept away from raw meats to avoid cross contamination and decrease chances of illness. Cooked chicken was moved. Corrected on site. Cheeses in salad bar cooler were found out of temperature. They were moved to walk-in cooler for rapid cooling since the cheese still had 45 minutes to cool before having to be discarded for lack of adequate temperature. Will come back in two weeks to check proper function of salad bar cooler.
