Restaurant Report Card: 9.12.19 Hot Box Bistro

By  | 

TOLEDO (WTVG) -- We've all heard don't sneeze into your hand. Instead, sneeze into your elbow.

However, if you sneeze in front of a health inspector, make sure you wash your hands afterward. Sanitizer is not enough, and it could end up as a Critical Violation.

A sanitarian with the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department saw an employee sneeze into a hand at Hot Box Bistro, 332 N Erie Street, Toledo. That was during a Standard Inspection, 4-Sep-2019, which resulted in 16 violations (4 critical & 12 non-critical). Among those:

X Several flies throughout the facility.
X Steak, cheese, sauces, and noodles with no date marking.
X Observed employee sneezing into hand and then attempting to wash with sanitizer.

13abc sent a message to Hot Box Bistro through its website. We're still waiting for a reply.
