Abstract:

Two feeding facilities, Ft. Myer and Bolling Air Force Base were studied for the microbial quality of their products and the state of their sanitation. With the exception of a cream pie, produced and served at Bolling Air Force Base, all food samples were well within the recommended microbial constraints. Sanitation at Ft. Myer was superior to that at Bolling Air Force Base, whereas the incidence of improper cooking and serving temperatures noted were comparable. Two additional monitoring aids, a paper thermometer thermo- label, used to determine the adequacy of the rinse water temperature of the warewasher and a swab technique capable of being used in the field were found to be useful aids in evaluating sanitary practices.
