One of our worst offenders in September had a violation noted by the inspector that included areas where food was not stored at the proper temperature, employees handling raw food and not washing their hands before touching other food and raw food prep areas not being cleaned properly. While these violations are fairly common in the restaurant industry, they can cause illness.
My list includes only restaurants (no bars, churches, businesses, corporate cafeterias or bakeries). It includes those restaurants that received five or more Critical Violations. These violations are ones that put customers at the highest risk for food poisoning. Here is a list of restaurants that received the most Critical Violations during September 2012 inspections.
If you'd like to give patronage to those restaurants that are keeping things healthy and safe for customers, check out this list of restaurants that received perfect scores during September 2012 inspections.
