Weekly health inspection violations at Fort Worth restaurants
Two Fort Worth restaurants received over 30 violations of health inspections in the first week of April.
The Fort Worth Health Department inspected various restaurants from April 1st to April 10th. If a restaurant suffers more than 30 violations, the restaurant must immediately take corrective action for any critical violations identified. The restaurant then has 48 hours to take corrective action for all other violations.
Jalisco, Pacos Mexican Cuisine, Sushi Axiom, Los Vaqueros, and Pacific Table received the most violations this month.
Jalisco Restaurant at 4200 South Freeway received 32 infractions and Paco’s Mexican cuisine at 1508 W. Magnolia Ave. 31.
Jalisco violations included two employees working at the restaurant for over a month and not taking grocer training – staff must complete that training within a week of starting work – and food workers did not have a stick thermometer to check the temperature of the Food. According to the violations, several foods were found to be outside the safe temperature range.
At Paco, the inspector noticed organic black matter in the ice bucket and the staff handled ready-to-eat food with bare hands in accordance with the violations.
Sushi Axiom at 12650 South Freeway received 30 violations. Los Vaqueros at 3201 S. University Drive got 27 and Pacific Table at 1600 S. University Drive 26.
