Received seven critical violations. Several employees were observed wiping their faces with towels they kept on their shoulders and then continuing to make tortillas, without first washing their hands. Another employee was seen talking on her cell phone while bagging tortillas. There were also a large amount of flies in the facility. The inspector noted that the cause may be due the building being "very hot" and that doors were left open. With more than five critical violations, Tortillas Don Chava was given a "Provisional" rating.
