Food for Thought Report 4.12

Whoever said you can't have dessert first?

Dippin' Dots tops our list of top performers this week. It's located inside South Plains Mall at 6002 Slide Road. This cool spot features good old fashioned ice cream, but it's frozen into tiny little dots, giving it a different look and texture.

Here's a look at the top performing schools.

  • Lubbock Cooper North Elementary
  • Mackenzie Middle School
  • Smylie Wilson Middle School
  • Coronado High School - Catering
  • Eagle Charter School

Here is a complete list of the restaurants and their violations for the week ending on 4/12/07.

Now to the schools with one violation.

  • Coronado High School did not have thermometers in all its cooling units.
  • There was no hot water at a hand sink at South Plains Academy.

Both schools say their violation has been corrected.

Now to our only low performer.

La Michoacano Meat Market & Taqueria at 2131 Clovis Road had six critical violations.

  • Sliced ham in a plastic bag was found on a counter at 64 degrees. The safe temperature is 41 degrees.
  • Chicken, beef stew, chile rellenos and rice were found between 93 and 122 degrees. Hot foods must be at least 135 degrees.
  • An employee did not change gloves or wash their hands between tasks.
  • A bowl was found in a hand wash sink.
  • Toxic items were found next to tortillas and other food items.
  • The facility did not have a thermometer for thin foods.

Management says everything has been corrected. The report shows all but one of the violations were corrected during the inspection.
