- Ceiling tiles over kitchen stove are deteriorating; particles and dust could fall into the food
- Lights are not shielded or shatter proof over in several areas of the facility
- An open employee’s beverage container was observed in the kitchen storage area
- Nine cans of infant formula were for sale past the expiration date. The value was $48.51; they were removed from the shelf
