Restaurant Report Card FOLLOW UP: 1.18.18 North Main Old Town Buffet

By  | 

TOLEDO (WTVG) -- If you're working with utensils, you have to clean or sanitize them once every four hours at minimum.

If not, it's a health code violation.

That violation happened inside B.M. Chen at 1227 S. Reynolds Road, Toledo. During the Standard Health Inspection Jan, 2, 2018, B.M. Chen had 10 Violations (4 Critical & 6 Non-Critical):

X In use utensils washed and sanitized every night instead of every four hours.
X Uncovered food items in the walk-in cooler and reach-in cooler.
X Ready to eat food items without date marks. .

13abc spoke with several employees at B.M. Chen. We're still waiting to hear from the owner.

Also, on Jan. 8, 2018, Wing Express at 1515 S. Byrne Road, Toledo had 12 Violations (4 Critical & 8 Non-Critical). Among those:

X Utensils stored in dirty containers.
X Unlabeled chemical spray bottle.
X Raw shell eggs stored above lettuce.

In response, Wing Express sent 13abc a message through Facebook stating, "All the food was properly handled/cooked. Violations were based on maintenance and paperwork I have to display."

The following day, another inspection at Wing Express brought the overall number of violations down to 4.

Now for a Restaurant Report Card Follow-Up at two different restaurants.

Last month, during a Standard Health Inspection, China Palace in the Southland Shopping Plaza at Byrne and Glendale had 15 Violations.

Since then, a spokesperson sent a message to 13abc stating, "We from China Palace were not trying to ignore this in any other way ... (We) are now working to improve and hope that when the next inspection is due, all the issue(s) would be resolved."

Finally, North Main Old Town Buffet at 1216 N. Main St., Bowling Green.

Last month, 13abc reported the Wood County Health district gave that restaurant 22 Violations.

In the following weeks, 4 subsequent Inspections brought the overall number down:
Follow-up Inspection 18-Dec-2017 0 critical & 3 non-critical
Complaint Inspection 29-Dec-2017 2 critical & 0 non-critical
