RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -
Three restaurants all with the same problem. Health inspectors say they weren't keeping food cold enough. That's a problem, because it allows bacteria to grow.
Up first, Mexico Restaurant at 7001 Forest Hill Avenue in Richmond. It had 5 critical violations, including that beef chimichangas, chicken taquitos, sour cream, salsa, shredded beef, tomatoes, and guacamole were not being kept cold enough in both a reach-in cooler and a sandwich prep unit. The inspector told them to throw all that food away. They did and other violations were corrected during the inspection.
Also on the critical list, Applebee's inside Richmond International Airport in Henrico, with 5 critical violations. The inspection report says cheese, sauteed onions, and burgers were sitting at elevated temperatures in a unit drawer. The inspector wrote that the foods were thrown away and told them to have the unit serviced. The restaurant had no violations on its follow-up inspection.
And in Chesterfield, Hooters of Midlothian at 1211 Huguenot Road had 5 critical violations. Among them, pork BBQ, sliced turkey, raw chicken, and wings in the breading tubs were not being kept cold enough. The inspector told them to move the food to a unit that could keep them the required 41 degrees. Upon return, the inspector wrote that the wings were again too warm in the breading tubs and told staff to find a way to keep them cold.
