Food for Thought Report 11.24

Many a blessing was said over the dinner table this Thanksgiving and if you're sick of turkey already, two top performing restaurants will be thankful to have you as their guest tomorrow. One other, however, is not so grateful for its eight critical violations.

Food for Thought 11.24
Here is a complete list of the restaurants and their violations for the week ending on 1/24/05.

You can get a cherry pie made fresh daily and a delectable gourmet burger inside our first top performer at 7301 University, so what else would it be called but Burgers Fries and Cherry Pies!

"We have a great group of employees. We give all the thanks to them. They're the ones who come in and do all the hard work. We're extremely thankful we're a top performer...especially on Thanksgiving. There's no doubt we're gonna have a perfect inspection every day we're open," said General Manager James Jordan.

Our second top performer is Chick-fil-A at 6820 Slide Road. This Chick-fil-A has been a top performer three years running and it may be because the kitchen staff hasn't changed in a year!

"We work hard every day. We have to thank our customers. We want to make sure we keep them coming back, said General Manager Brad Maisel.

Whistlin Dixie at 8222 University is alone on the low performer list this Thanksgiving with eight critical violations.

  • Potentially hazardous foods were not cooling properly
  • Fish was found above the required cold temperature
  • Employees were not washing their hands between job duties
  • Good hygienic practices were not being followed
  • Spices and canned goods were not in sound condition
  • Thermometers were not properly calibrated
  • Food contact surfaces throughout the facility were heavily soiled

A manager tells NewsChannel 11 each violation has been corrected, and they'll be on top of it next time.
