Food for Thought: 7/17
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -
Dozens of restaurants were inspected, but only a few of them made this week's Food for Thought list - and they're not all at the top.
KCBD NewsChannel 11's Christy Hartin dishes out the details.
Texas Cafe and Grill
at 3604 50th had seven critical violations.
Chili was not cooling properly. This can allow for the growth of bacteria.
Milk, salsa and potato salad were above the safe cold temperature of 41 degrees.
Onions were not in good condition.
Raw eggs were stored above ready to eat foods.
Turkey, ham and sausage were held past their date mark. Ribs and potato salad did not have a date mark.
Toxic items were not labeled. Personal medication was stored with food items in a cooler.
A sanitizer solution for dishes was not strong enough.
The report shows all violations were corrected. Management tells us their kitchen staff has been retrained and their re-inspection was perfect.
Fuzzy's Taco Shop
at 2102 Broadway also had seven critical violations.
Multiple cold foods were above 41 degrees. Drink mixes labeled "refrigerate after opening" were kept at room temperature.
Employees did not wash their hands when changing gloves.
Tongs were on the faucet of a hand sink.
There was no soap at a hand sink.
There were flies in the kitchen.
There was a dead fly in a container of shrimp. The racks in the walk-in cooler were dirty and debris was falling onto food. An employee used the same tongs to handle raw seafood and cooked chicken.
A food container was cracked.
Management tells us everything was quickly corrected. The report shows that as well.
And here are this week's top performers:
Burger House at 2405 19th
Copper Caboose at 5609 Villa Dr.
Rejavanate Coffee Bar at 6524 Slide
Silver Bullet at 5145 Aberdeen
