June 2: Restaurant Report

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - In this Restaurant Report, the State Health Department says food must be stored at least 6 inches above the ground. That helps to prevent contaminants and pests from getting into the food.

The location of some food was the problem in Ashland at China Wok, 107 Hill Carter Parkway, which had 4 critical violations. The report says a bin of raw chicken and shrimp was on the floor of the walk-in cooler and containers of soy sauce and sweet and sour sauce were on the floor in the kitchen. All violations were corrected for a perfect score on a follow-up inspection a week later.

Moving to Chesterfield, McDonald's at 15700 Woods Edge Road also had 4 critical violations, including that there was a heavy layer of grease build-up in the warming drawers holding chicken nuggets. The drawers were immediately cleaned. All critical violations were corrected by the follow-up inspection.

But there have been no such problems at Inter China, 11623 Midlothian Turnpike in Chesterfield. This Chinese Restaurant wins the NBC12 Hall of Fame Award for perfect scores on the last six of seven inspections.

Hope you're hungry! Broad Appetit is on Sunday, June 5. You can sample local restaurants' sumptuous fare for $3 a plate between 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. The event is being held between 100 and 300 West Broad Street in Richmond.
