(KCBD) -

Each week health inspectors head into kitchens all across the Hub City to make sure they're keeping clean. And, it's not just restaurants they check out.

Everything from day cares and school cafeterias, to hotels and food trucks gets inspected.

And in this week's Food for Thought - it's one of those that landed at the bottom of the list.

  • Hawthorn Suits at 4435 Marsha Sharp Fwy had 14 violations.
  • Multiple food items were above the safe cold temperature of 41 degrees.
  • Containers of meatballs, rice and beans, hummus and sauces were sitting out on top of a microwave. They had no labels or date mark, and it was unknown how long they had been sitting out.
  • Scrambled eggs were not at least 135 degrees.
  • An open container of hummus in a cooler did not have a date mark.
  • Cut pieces of cardboard were stored on top of an open box of hot chocolate.
  • Clean utensils were sitting on a dirty shelf.
  • The drawers and counter at the breakfast area were dirty.
  • There was no thermometer inside a cooler.
  • Dishes were drying in the mop sink.
  • An employee was eating in the kitchen while on-duty.
  • A plastic bag with a white powder was stored in a cooler and did not have a label.
  • A kitchen fan was soiled.
  • Personal items were stored in multiple areas of the kitchen.
  • The certified food manager certificated was not available.

The inspector notes due to the number and the nature of the violations management did not show proper food safety knowledge.

According to the report most of the violations were corrected at the time of the inspection.

It also indicates the hotel will soon be under new management.
