New York City restaurants are now required to freeze their raw fish before serving it to customers

Back in February 20sushi15, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene considered ruling that all raw fish needed to be kept frozen until it was served. The regulation states that in August, raw fish must be stored in a freezer for at least 15 hours to one week, depending on the restaurant’s freezer and storage. Not all seafood will need to be frozen: Shellfish, farm-raised fish, and some varieties of tuna are exempt from the ruling.

Food and Drug Administration regulations stipulate that fish to be eaten raw – whether as sushi, sashimi, seviche, or tartare  must be frozen first, to kill parasites – but they do not enforce the frozen-fish rule, leaving that to local health officials. The agency says sushi fish can be frozen either by the wholesaler or in the restaurant, and each party likes to believe that the other is taking care of it.

But this is not a new concept for some New York City restaurants  especially those that offer high-quality sushi.

In 2016, restaurants will need to state on menus that consuming raw and undercooked foods can be dangerous to one’s health.

Walk- In Cooler Problems- Troubleshooting Guide

The following information is an introduction to the Arctic Walk- Ins troubleshooting guide:

Door Closer
The door closer has been adjusted at the factory so that the rubber roller just touches and slightly turns as it passes the tip on the hook when the door is closing. When properly installed, the door is self-closing and should not be slammed. Slamming the door may cause the door closer to fall out of alignment.

Door Panels
Door and frames have been checked for proper fit and operation at the factory. An unlevel floor may cause doors to not hang square or close properly. This can occur initially at the time of installation or at later date after traffic and the weight of stored product have caused the floor panels to sag. It may be necessary to shim under walk-in floor or door frames at some adjustment. Make sure frame legs are parallel to each other and to adjacent wall panels. The door may not seal properly if the frame is twisted or out of plumb.

Digital Thermometer
Digital thermometers are installed, prewired and tested at the factory.
If your Alarm displays PO message in your digital thermometer you probably have an open probe or the switch closed. If your Alarm displays P1 message in your digital thermometer your probe is not connected.
Always ensure that the probe is connected to the instrument before the power supply is connected and turned ON.
Please consult factory for any calibration or alarm display issues.

Door Heater Replacement
1- The door heater is connected to the same power supply as the light fixture. Turn power off at the source
2- Remove threshold
3- Using a thin-blade screwdriver apply pressure (not leverage) to the door frame extrusion. Pull the s/s snap-on cover with your hand as shown. Always start at one end and continue the operation described above until the entire cover is removed.
4- Remove globe from the vapor proof light fixture
5- Remove receptacle plate on VP light and disconnect heater wire leads.
6- Remove defective heater wire.
7- Install replacement heater wire. Tack with permagum sparingly in order to hold wire in place in its channel.
8- Reinforce with aluminum foil tape (two wraps) at four corners.
9- “Snake” heater wire at threshold taking extra care not to overlap wire, or allow wire to touch itself. Tack down with permagum and foil tape.
10- Reconnect heater wire leads on VP light.
11- Re-Install receptacle plate, globe on VP light.
12- To replace the s/s cover, apply pressure as shown and with your hand press down until the cover snaps in place.
13- Re-install threshold
13- Turn power supply on
