With the Memorial Day weekend close at hand, health department inspectors visited hotels and pools as well as restaurants this week.

While there were no failures to report, food storage safety seems to be a familiar theme for the several restaurants that received low scores.

Foodworks on Manufacturers Road was given a score of 76 for several reasons: The manager was not in control of several foodborne illness risk factors and did not have an approved food safety certification. Inspectors also found cooked lasagna that was two days past the 7-day maximum holding time. They also found cooked pulled pork in the walk-in cooler that was dated more than 7 days old, cooked cream and sausage cooling between 110°F and 150°F in large plastic container with the lid off. The cooling time and temperature were not being tracked. They also found two dented cans of green chilis.

After a follow-up inspection, Foodworks received a new score of 95.

At the Waffle House at 4903 Brainerd Road, inspectors gave a score of 86, for the refrigeration unit where ham, bacon, sausage, chicken were stored had an ice build-up on the unit, and was dripping onto the food inside that was not covered, nor protected. The time was expired on board and fresh eggs in a storage basket failed to change time. Old spillage was found to be accumulated between the grill and wall. 

87 Rembrandt's Coffee House on High Street earned a score of 87 for no soap/paper towels provided at front counter service hand basin. Proper dating was not provided on TCS foods in low boy unit and the floors were dirty behind/underneath equipment.
