Critical violations in walk-in coolers top the list

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

When health inspectors went inside the walk-in coolers in two local restaurants, they spotted critical violations that bothered them. Here's what the restaurants were doing wrong, and what they did about it.

In Chesterfield, O'Charley's at 12401 Tennessee Plaza had six critical violations, including that burger patties in the walk-in cooler were not being kept cold enough. The report says that and other violations were fixed during the inspection. On the check-up report two weeks later, O'Charley's had everything correct but the menu still didn't say eggs could be served undercooked.

O'Charley's corporate office sent us a statement, reading in part: "At O'Charley's, we take all health inspection matters very seriously and have since instituted additional measures and oversight to ensure these issues do not occur again."

Sushi King and Grill at 9125 West Broad Street in Henrico had four critical violations. The report says a tray of raw chicken was dripping juice over sushi products in the walk-in cooler. That's a violation because the juice could spread bacteria to sushi products, which are usually eaten raw. The inspector noted that and other violations were corrected during the inspection.

But take a look at how clean it is inside the Jadean's Smoking Six 0 mobile food unit, based at 1300 Huguenot Road, Chesterfield. When we delivered the NBC12 Hall of Fame Award, they showed us how they make their barbecue.

Said Jadean's M. Dean Ciejeck, "Smoke goes across the bottom and into the meat, into the rib box and it can hold 75 racks of baby back ribs."

Jadean's serves barbecue across that region, including in Virginia Beach, Washington DC, and Florida. It has aced all of its health inspections.

Explained Ciejeck, "Know what the inspectors expect. If you keep your mobile kitchen straight, its not a problem."
