It's my opinion that the ice scoop handle needs to be free of contamination since the bartenders are grabbing the handle to fill glasses with ice. This makes perfect sense to me. Contamination in the ice is a sure fire way of infecting the entire public if the bartender were to have the flu. This inspector said the ice scoop needs to be in it's own container outside of the ice bin so that the entire ice bin was not contaminated. The last inspector said the ice scoop needs to be in the ice bin because at the frigid temperatures of the ice bin no viruses can survive, or propogate.
