Kitchen Cops: Inspectors deal with employees that are too handy

TUCSON - Once again the pima county health department finds restaurants not "hand"ling food correctly.

Bobo's Restaurant, at 2938 E. Grant Rd., received seven critical violations. A dishwasher was observed handling clean dishes after smoking a cigarette. A cook was seen preparing a sandwich with her bare hands. Containers of corn chowder, green beans and potatoes tested at 68 degrees and over, well above the required maximum 41-degrees. Employee's personal beverages were found resting over prepared food.

With more than five critical violations not corrected during the inspection, Bobo's Restaurant was given a "Provisional" rating. The Pima County Health Department has confirmed the restaurant passed re-inspection. Bobo's management said, "The inspection was an unfortunate awaking. Since then we have done a lot of in house training and signed up for server-safe classes."

Happy Boy Hot Dogs, mobile restaurant, received four critical and one non-critical violations. An employee was observed rinsing his hands with a jug of water. The Pima County Health Department requires employees to clean their hands with a cleaning component. The operator was also cited for not having running water on the cart. Hot grilled onions and peppers tested at 108 and 110 degrees, respectively. Hot food must be held at a minimum 130-degrees.

With all violations not corrected with the inspector on site, Happy Boy Hot Dogs, was given a "Needs Improvement" rating.
