JACKSON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

The first stop for the Kitchen Cops is the South Sauty Café in Langston. A health inspector handed them a 78.

The owner, Amy Aldana, let us come inside for a look. She wants to point out none of the critical violations directly involved food that would be served, and she says they're looking forward to doing better during their next inspection. During this inspection, the health inspector reports a fry basket with loose wires, that Teflon pans were peeling, and that a can opener blade and a grater needed cleaned.

We'll stay in Langston for this week's lowest score. The County Cafe, located at the Mountain Lakes Resort, scored a 65. The inspector reports a hand washing sink was inaccessible, the sink where they wash pots and pans by hand had no back siphonage protection, there was a strainer with loose wires, and a skimmer needed cleaned.

Also reported; raw meats 24 degrees above the maximum temperature required to prevent bacterial growth in cold-holding foods, and egg-milk batter was almost thirty degrees too warm. The inspector also reports evidence of tobacco use in the ice cream parlor.

The Valero on Drake Avenue in Huntsville scored an 83. A Madison County health inspector reports mold in the ice machine, that the ice cream case needed to defrost, and they found a cutting board in disrepair.

Three low performers, three chances at redemption upon reinspection. We'll tell you how they do the next time the inspector comes around.
