Carbondale buffet hit with nearly 30 violations

Posted: Updated:

WSIL -- The Golden Corral in Carbondale was hit with 29 violations. Four of them were labeled as critical. The eatery got a 70 from the Jackson County inspector.

Chicken breast was found in the cooler that was past its expiration date. The meat was discolored and had to be thrown away. Several food items were not being stored hot enough or cold enough. Burritos, mashed potatoes and honey dew all had to be pitched.

The foot pedals on the sink at the grill area were missing. Pedals were also missing from sinks in several other areas of the restaurant. The final critical violation was a five point loss because spray bottles were found in the bakery area without a label. Bottles must have a label with the contents on it. Several cleaning problems were also noted, including the need to rewash some dishes and removing food debris from equipment. A re-inspection a week later found all violations had been fixed.

The Carterville location of Tequila's earned an 85. One critical violation was found, five points were taken away because spray bottles were not labeled. Other problems include dish washer racks being improperly stored. Soda bibs were not six inches off the floor. Cheese and chips also need to be covered in the walk in cooler.

Double Overtime Grill in Mt. Vernon got a 91. The Jefferson County inspector didn't find any critical violations. Two points were deducted because frozen items weren't being thawed properly. The walls, floor and some food contact surfaces also need to be cleaned better.

Chong's Carryout in Royalton was a point higher. It received a 92 from the Franklin County inspector. One critical violation was found, four points were taken away because items were being stored in the hand sink.

The McCracken County inspector took away three points from Charleys Philly Steak in Paducah. Employees were reminded to wear gloves when handling food.
