Food for Thought Report 3.14

City health inspectors combed through six county food establishments and 44 local places this week. There were no Top pr Low Performers in the county, but inspectors did find one violation at the Idalou School District. A dishwasher was not working properly and there was no hot water.

Inside Lubbock city limits, we've got a local supermarket that's reached perfection, twice, and we jump into the frying pan to find our low performer.

The name is Lowe's but their performance is tops. The meat and grocery departments at Lowe's at 5201 82nd St. each have zero critical violations, making them both Food for Thought Top Performers.

Now on to our lone Low Performer this week. Skillet's at 4011 19th St. is where inspectors found four critical violations. Those violations include:

  • Chili was being held at a temperature of 127 degrees for an undetermined amount of time. Hot foods should be maintained at 140 degrees or warmer. The chili was discarded.
  • A hand sink was being used as a dump sink. Hand sinks should be used for no other purpose than hand washing.
  • Rice was found stored in a freezer with no date mark indicating the day of preparation.
  • Towels were missing from a hand washing station.

Other violations included a wiping cloth being stored on a counter. The manager at Skillet's tells NewsChannel 11 that all violations have been corrected, and the report states that as well.
