  • In a large plastic container, a white powder had more than 50 large winged insects in the powder. Some were flying and some were dead. PIC (Person in Charge) wasn’t sure what was in the container, thought it was corn starch as it wasn’t labeled. The insects were contained to the container. COS (Corrected on Site) – voluntarily discarded the container. Wrapped it up & put it outside.
  • In the reach in cooler, raw chicken in a wrapped metal container was stored above RTE (Ready To Eat) green peppers. No leakage detected. COS – cooler rearranged
