Restaurants With Poor Inspection Results in September 2012

By

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.

This list represents those restaurants during the month of September 2012. They deserve our support and our business.

that had five or more Critical violations -- those that are considered a risk for foodborne illness -- during their last inspection. While the Marion County Health Department warns that it's hard to get a good sense of a restaurant's cleanliness from one inspection, I would keep an eye on these and how they perform over the next few months. If they make this list several months in a row, I would avoid them.

Here is the list of those restaurants in Marion County which had five or more Risk Factor Violations, with the worst at the top of the list. After you peruse the worst, please take a look at the many Marion County restaurants that achieved perfect inspections during the month of September 2012. They deserve our support and our business.
