Its three crucial infractions were for failing to protect food from contamination or adulteration, failing to ensure a food handler washed their hands to prevent contamination of food and the handling of ice in an unsanitary manner.

The three significant infractions were also of the cleanliness variety: failing to maintain handwashing stations with soap and paper towels, using utensils “not of readily cleanable form,” and sanitizing utensils in chlorine solution of “less than 100 p.p.m. (parts per million) of available chlorine.”
