Restaurant Report Card: 7.13.18 American Table Fostoria

By  | 

FOSTORIA, Ohio (WTVG) -- When you work in a restaurant, you have to make sure all the utensils are clean.

That includes a spatula. Because if there's build up of food debris on the spatula, it could be violation.

A sanitarian with the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department noted that violation during a Standard Inspection 26-Jun-2018 at Bob Evans,1220 E Alexis Road, Toledo. It ended with 11 violations (5 critical & 6 non-critical), including:

X Food employee(s) did not wash hands.
X Build up of food debris on spatulas.
X Build up inside nozzles of cappuccino machine.

13abc sent a message to Bob Evans through its corporate website. We're still waiting for a reply.

Also on 26-Jun-2018, Popeye's Chicken And Biscuits, 3214 Secor Road, Toledo had 12 violations (5 critical & 7 non-critical). Among those:

X Dirty containers, steam table, chicken area equipment.
X Significant amount of gnats throughout facility.
X Chicken not being held at the proper temperature.

That last violation and three others were corrected during the inspection.

13abc sent a message to Popeye's through the corporate website. We have yet to receive a reply.

Finally, during a Standard Inspection 28-Jun-2018 at American Table Family Restaurant, 603 Plaza Drive, Fostoria, the Seneca County Health District noted 13 violations (8 critical & 5 non-critical). Three were:

X Foods not datemarked

X Sliced ham had an internal temperature of 46F (instead of 41 or lower).

In response, a manager with American Table Family Restaurant in Fostoria told 13abc over the phone:

"(The sanitarian) came in the middle of the lunch rush ... at 3 o'clock after everything is done, (our employees) clean ... Everything's clean, everything's put in place, everything's date marked ... we're just waiting for (the sanitarian) to come back."
