May 16 RESTAURANT REPORT: No handwashing before touching food

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - It's one thing for a state health inspector to catch restaurant workers not washing their hands before they touch food. But in this edition of the Restaurant Report, the inspector wrote that it happened again when he went back.

The location was the Red House Restaurant at 9810 Jefferson Davis Highway in Chesterfield, which had 6 critical violations. The inspection report says employees began handling food without washing their hands first. Violations were corrected during the inspection. But when the inspector went back two weeks later, the report shows it happened again. Red House finally had all violations corrected by a third re-inspection.

In Richmond, PGT Beauregard at 103 East Cary Street had 4 critical violations. Among them, containers used to store dish sanitizer and one labeled "corrosive" were used to store tofu, broccoli, and chicken stock. The report says they threw out the food and corrected other violations while the inspector was still on site.

And in Henrico, Roda Japan House at 1080 Virginia Center Parkway had 4 critical violations. The inspector noted bowls of fresh salad were stacked on top of each other in a cold storage unit. Some violations were corrected during the inspection.

This week's NBC12 Hall of Fame Award goes to Kitty's Grill at 2828 Nine Mile Road. This grill near Church Hill has had 5 flawless health inspections in a row.
