• Little Caesar’s, 1334 Rombach Ave., Wilmington, Nov. 2. Follow-up. When I arrived at the facility there was one person working. When I started asking questions, they stated that they were still in training.
Critical: There is no one at this facility that can answer any questions regarding time holding. Each facility must have one person on each shift that is the Person In Charge and can answer questions. None of the items on the pizza rack were using the timer. Shift had changed and the employee was not sure when some of the items had been made, since they were made by the previous shift. All product was rolled into walk-in cooler. None of the items in the hot holding unit had sticker on them. Employee was not sure how long some items had been there (made on previous shift). Pizzas are placed on rack for 60 minutes and timers must be used; this is not being used. So if you are not following procedure, then product must be placed in refrigeration unit until changes can be made and verified. Items in hot holding unit must be times and stickers must be applied; nothing in this unit is stickered or can be checked. The employee working now does not know how stickers work or how to scan. If procedure cannot be followed, then must cook to order. Will return on Nov. 9 to see if any of these items have been fixed.
Non-critical: There is no verification available that anyone at this facility has manager certification.
Follow-up: Nov. 9.
