Starbucks Coffee Company

9737 Destiny USA Drive, Syracuse

Inspected on Feb. 6

Various food items inside the glass display case noted with drain flies on the food. Counted at least 2 dozen drain flies inside the case. The case is for display only, and will not be served to guests, however, it provides a food source and a breeding ground for the drain flies, and needs to be discarded and not put back up for display until the drain flies are under control. All food in display case has been discarded by management. On main service line, counters underneath equipment not clean. Interior of milk cooler in the back room not clean. Cockroaches and drain flies present inside the establishment. Glass display case is not airtight, and therefore not a fit place to display fresh food items, even if they are not out for consumption, due to the drain fly problem inside the establishment. The drain flies are able to enter the display case and use the food on display as a food source. The fresh food is to be taken down and not re-set up until the drain flies are gone. Floors under and around the lower equipment on the main service line, not clean. Concentrate on the floor areas around drains and plumbing, and behind the coolers. Pull out equipment and clean floors at least once per week.
