Restaurant Report Card: Meat stored at dangerous temps

HOUSTON – Keep your bare hands off the food: That’s the rule restaurant workers broke this week at Louisiana Fish House on East Crosstimbers.

Inspectors said an employee wasn’t wearing gloves while handling garlic bread.


Bare hand contact was also a problem for employees at Denny’s on the North Freeway near the Beltway.

A line cook had his hands all over the pancakes. Another employee wasn’t wearing her hairnet while working in the dishwashing area.

At the Cru Wine Bar in Upper Kirby, inspectors found tuna and pork stored at dangerous temperatures. The food was found unsafe for human consumption.

Barbacoa got the boot at La Moreliana on West Tidwell. There, inspectors threw out 100 pounds of the meat that were stored at dangerous temperatures.

They also spotted a green substance growing on the doors of the cooler.

And KPRC 2 News rounds out this week’s violations at La Familia Meat Market in the east end, where food inspectors found rodent droppings on the shelves.

We want to congratulate the hard working staff at Jason’s Deli at 11081 Westheimer. They’ve earned an A-plus rating this week for an absolutely perfect inspection.
