Toledo, OH (WTVG) -- We call this the Restaurant Report Card, but health inspectors look into more than just restaurants. For example, food markets also get thorough standard inspections. Last time around, Monettes on Secor was violation free.
By contrast, Marina Market at 3740 Summit St. had 12 violations, including 8 critical and 8 repeats.
Erie Food Market at 727 Galena St. had 15 violations, including:
- Meat trays stored on the floor in the produce area
- Chipping ceiling pant in the meat walk-in cooler
- Three glass jars of baby food held beyond the manufacturers expiration date on the sales shelf
The owner of Erie Food Market told 13abc ... "we had some violations, and as of today, we've corrected all the violations they've asked us to do."
But this is, after all, the *Restaurant* Report Card, and some restaurants don't always make the grade. Glass City Showgirls, 159 Matzinger Rd., had the highest amount of violations of any restaurant so far this year -- 16, including:
- Raw shell eggs and raw steaks stored above ready to eat food and beverages
- Ready to eat food items held beyond the 7 day hold time permitted
- The prep sink in a "soiled" state
We left a voicemail for the manager. We're still waiting to hear back.
Now, an RRC follow up. At the beginning of the year, we told you New Empire Chinese restaurant, 6540 Centers Dr., in Holland had 12 violations. The day before our report aired, a small grease fire broke out in the kitchen. The sprinkler system put out those flames, and the restaurant in Spring Meadows was able to re-open. New Empire's next inspection had a lower number of violations: from 12, down to 8.
The green stamp this time around goes to the Toledo Zoo. Seven of its food stands and restaurants, including the employee cafeteria, were violation free. That's enough to make any animal hungry.
