A Lubbock meat market and deli is closed, after the Lubbock Health Department pulls both their processing and retail permits.
"They were shut down due to health violations," Lubbock Environmental Health manager Bridget Faulkenberry said.
The Lubbock Health Department pulled Carniceria Sonora's processing and retail permits Tuesday after finding 13 violations at the meat market and deli at 2837 Clovis Road.
According to the four page report, the establishment was shut down due to "repeat violations and imminent health hazards," and more than a week later the door is still padlocked shut.
Health inspectors went to the facility after someone complained of raw meat on the roof. Inspectors found uncovered meat on a rack, on top of the building and flies were on the meat. Bottle flies, which are attracted to filth and decaying meat, were around the back of the building.
Here's a look at the other violations.
We went in search of answers to the list of violations. The owner said all violations had been corrected, but we wanted to see for ourselves. The owner tells us he has had two follow-up inspection with repeat critical violations, but he expects to reopen Friday after another inspection by the health department.
"I can't really say when they will open, or if they will open, but we are working with them," Faulkenberry said.
