While thankfully there are no failures to report in this week's Restaurant Report Card, a lack of food safety knowledge seemed to be a common violation for two restaurants that were scored low this week by inspectors.

Ten establishments earned perfect scores, and we salute their efforts!

At Fazoli's, 3016 Battlefield Parkway, they received a score of 74 for person in charge lacks food safety knowledge, only hand sink in the facility was blocked, broken containers were being used for food storage in cooler and a severe build-up of grease, rust and debris on grease traps of equipment.

Thai Smile at 219 Market Street, inspectors gave a 75 for lack of food safety knowledge, a cell phone on prep counter where food was stored, dirty rags sitting out, gasket on beer cooler in poor repair and non-food contact surfaces dirty.

Hennen's, 193 Chestnut Street scored an 85  for the floor being dirty/in poor repair, cooler gaskets in poor repair, non-food contact surfaces dirty and wet stacking of clean dishes.
