Here's a look at this week's low performers.
Kentucky Fried Chicken at 2219 19th Street had five critical violations.
KFC's district manager Alex Ambriz took us inside the kitchen to their show customers all violations have been taken care of.
"This store has been a top performer in the past. We've done good, and hopefully by allowing them to come back into our kitchen with ya'll assistance I hope they can see that we've addressed and taken care of these issues," Alex said.
Let's take a look at the violations.
Alex says this is an issue they've never had to deal with before, but they addressed it immediately.
"We're dealing with a national pest control company, and they've come in and cleaned up the problem. It's been taken care of. So, we just want to make sure our customers understand that their health is their main concern," Alex said.
"One of the girls was cleaning and she went up to tend to a customer and instead of setting it on a counter she just thought her first instinct was to set it on the counter next to her," Alex said.
Alex adds that she was a new employee and has been retrained about proper placement of toxic items.
Alex says the tongs are used to dip chicken at the flavor stations. Since their inspection, they have set up a designated area after each use.
Alex adds that they do strict routine checks three times a day, and this location recently received the highest health score in the KFC company during a routine cooperate inspection.
Church's Fried Chicken at 905 Ave. Q had six critical violations.
Management says, "All violations have been corrected." The report shows all but one violation was corrected while the inspector was there.
El Chico at 4301 Brownfield also had six critical violations.
Management says, "All violations have been corrected." The report show most were corrected at the time of the inspection.
Pinocchio's Pizza at 5404 4th Street had eight critical violations.
Pinocchio's is under new ownership. The owner says,"We are in the process of training new employees and updating and upgrading equipment (like their walk-in cooler and automatic dishwasher)." He adds, "All violations have been corrected." The report shows most were corrected during the inspection.
