Never use home prepared or home canned food in your restaurant as it is not known if it was safely prepared.

Inspect foods to reduce your risk for food borne illness and to be sure that food is safe.Check delivery vehicles for cleanliness and proper temperature control. Dirty vehicles could contaminate food. Never accept food that has been shipped in a vehicle that has carried live animals or harmful substances. If these vehicles must be used, they must be thoroughly washed, rinsed, and sanitized before they are used to transport food. Temperature-controlled vehicles must be at the proper temperature.
• Vehicles used to transport refrigerated foods must be at 41oF (5oC) or colder;
• Vehicles used to transport frozen foods must be at 0oF (-18oC) or colder; and
• Vehicles used to transport hot foods must be at 135oF (57oC) or hotter. SCHEDULED HOURS FOR RECEIVING
