Improper hand washing and bare-handed food contact lead to lower scores

Posted: Updated:

While thankfully there are no failures to report this week, we do have details of how a few restaurants were cited by health department inspectors.

The Wendy's 5872 Alabama Highway, scored a 78 for employees not properly washing or drying hands, employees handling raw ground beef and then dipping hands into sanitation bucket instead of washing hands and the interior of a microwave oven was dirty. Corrected to 99

At Mexiville Mexican Restaurant, 809 Market Street earned an 87 for improper thawing methods, employees were making bare hand contact with ready-to-eat foods, improper date marking. Corrected to 97. 

Sawasdee Thai Restaurant 4608 St. Elmo Avenue received a score of 88 for food not properly labeled, contamination that was not prevented during food prep and utensils in use not properly stored.

At the Huddle House 9401 Reco Drive, inspectors gave an 88 because a cutting board was in poor repair, wet containers were stacked and a hood on a vent was not working. Corrected to 93.

Hardee's 9398 Reco Drive also scored an 88 for ice cream scoops that were stored in standing water and a shelf above a biscuit station that was dirty.

Mellow Mushroom 205 Broad Street was given an 88 for food stored on the floor in a freezer and the wet stacking of clean equipment. Corrected to 98.

We also like to congratulate the 15 establishments who earned perfect scores this week!
