Subway (inside Wal-Mart), 2825 SR 73 South, Wilmington, Feb. 1.

Complaint: Received complaint regarding meatballs being served cold in sandwich, food sitting out at room temperature, water on the floor by the soda machine, employee (young man) wiping his nose with hands then putting on gloves to make sandwiches.

Critical: Meatballs in warmer were 98-125°F. Sticker on unit was Jan. 28 till 2:00. All time/temperature-controlled foods must be kept hot at 135°F or above. All foods must be dated for use within 7 days and must be properly discarded by date and time on product. Meatballs need to be discarded and new pan heated for use. Spoke with general manager of Subway on phone. Explained that they need to address situation immediately and that it appears it is coming from floor drain? I can’t get to drain or see what is going on, but wall behind unit not wet and cabinet floor not wet, just floor around cabinet. Explained that if this (water) continues to get larger, they may need to shut off water until plumber can resolve problem. I also spoke to Wal-Mart management regarding issue. I explained we license Subway and whatever agreement they have with Wal-Mart they will need to address. This needs to be addressed ASAP.

Non-critical: Water all over the floor in front of soda machine. Rug on floor soaked. Big puddles of water in front of entire cabinet and wall.

Follow-up: Re-inspection will be conducted Feb. 3 to check for repairs.
