Is Your Favorite Restaurant Safe?
State health inspectors go out unannounced to check out restaurants and now the state is posting those reports online.
I checked out the reports on some of my favorite restaurants and most of them had really good records, but I did find some violations that worry me for one Mexican restaurant I like to visit every now and then. Here's the list of things they were cited for:
1. Food - Condition, Source, Labeling: Food – Date Marking
Ready to eat, potentially hazardous food prepared on premises and held for more than 24 hours is not date marked. V/C
Employee did not wash hands and exposed portions of arms at appropriate time.
4. Cross Contamination: Cross Contamination – Food to Food
Food is not stored six (6) inches off the floor.
Food stored for cold-holding and service was not held at a temperature of 41 °F or below. V/C
Raw animal foods with different cooking temperature requirements are not separated to prevent cross
contamination during storage, preparation, or display.
5. Food Protection: Food Storage – 6” Off Floor, Dry, Covered
This is not the place, but after reading the report, I don't think I'll be eating there anymore.
