Two Cleveland restaurants fail inspections after improperly storing food

Two failing scores in Cleveland this week after an inspector found chicken to be undercooked at one restaurant and improper storage techniques being used at another. Japanese Hibachi Express on Spring Creek Boulevard scored a 46 and Burrito Xpress on Inman Street scored a 63. At Japanese Hibachi Express, the inspector saw an employee not change their gloves between cleaning and cooking at the grill, and also between using wiping cloths and performing food preparation. Raw steak was found being stored over uncovered sauces. The inspector says the floor, ceiling and walls were very dirty. Containers that are only meant to be used once were being washed and re-used for other food products. Chicken was only cooked to 127 to 156 degrees, where it needs to be cooked to at least 185 degrees. Utensils were only being rinsed before being put away as clean. The inspector noted a clean metal pot was being stored on the floor, as well as boxes of broccoli in the walk-in cooler. The inspector also suggested the restaurant should take the food safety training class through the Bradley County Health Department.

At Burrito Xpress, the inspector said there was poor handwashing techniques, and the sink did not have hot water. An employee was seen handling raw beef and then began to clean dishes without washing hands. Employees were found to not be wearing jewelry properly in the food preparation area. The restroom was in disrepair and did not have a covered trash can. According to the inspector dishes were not being pre-scrapped before being washed and were stored as clean with food residue on them. They were then being stacked together wet, and not properly air-drying. Multiple wet sanitizing cloths were being stored outside of the sanitization solution. Food was being held past its seven-day disposal date, and the restaurant had to throw away 15 pounds of food. Raw beef was being left out to thaw for the next day on the counter. Cooked food was not being held warm enough and they did not have the correct water levels in the steam-wells. The inspector said there was no consistent date marking procedure in the restaurant. The owner of Burrito Xpress met with the inspector and they discussed cooling methods. If you have a question about a restaurant, hotel, pool or gym – call your local health department.
