Here is a complete list of the restaurants and their violations for the week ending on 1/29/09.

This week's lone low performer is Carino's Italian Kitchen at 6821 Slide Road. Health inspectors cited them for six critical violations.

  • Five cooling units were keeping food between 44 and 50 degrees. Cold foods must be 41 degrees or below.
  • Thermometers in cooling units were not properly calibrated.
  • Employees were not able to properly wash their hands because there was no cold at a hand sink, making the water too hot.
  • Dirty utensils were in a hand sink. Employees' drinks were near food contact surfaces.
  • A dish wash machine was not sanitizing.
  • Utensils were dirty or unusable.

Management says the health inspector returned the next day for a follow-up and everything had been corrected.
