MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -
Paleteria La Michoacana in Albertville scored a 60 with the Marshall County Health Department. The restaurant narrowly averted an immediate closing. A mandatory shutdown happens when a food establishment scores 59 or below.
The health inspector reported finding a piece of cardboard in food. The inspector also reported finding insecticide stored on a shelf next to food, corn and cheese sauce held below the required hot-holding temperature to prevent bacterial growth, and employee drinks scattered throughout the food preparation areas.
The inspector said Paleteria La Michoacana fixed the problems. They will be reinspected within 30 days of the inspection, which is mandatory for any restaurant which scores 69 or lower.
The same reinspection timetable is in place for El Sol King Pollo in Albertville after the restaurant scored a 69. The health inspector cited the restaurant for workers eating and drinking in food preparation and service areas. The inspector also reported a dirty ice maker, that there were no expiration dates marked for several food items in a cooler, and that there was no working hand sink in the bar area.
Tienda Maya II in Albertville scored a 73. The health inspector cited the establishment for workers prepping food in a sink while washing dishes. The inspector also reported finding cold-holding foods above the required temperature and workers pouring liquid food waste on the ground.
Baumhower's Wings Restaurant in Huntsville scored an 82. A Madison County health inspector reported that several food items were held too warm, including raw fish, chicken and beef.
K-May Donuts in Albertville remained on the Health Department's reinspection schedule after scoring below 85 for the third straight time with a 79. The health inspector reported finding meat croissants and hot kolaches well below the required temperature.
Big Sam's in Decatur scored a 79 during a reinspection after scoring a 71 during their previous inspection. The inspector reported corn dogs and sausage held below the required temperature.
