MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Three restaurants had low scores in this week's Kitchen Cops.

The Western Sizzlin in Boaz remains on the Marshall County Health Department's reinspection schedule after scoring a 72 during their recent inspection. The restaurant scored an 80 during their previous inspection in September.

This time, the inspector reported that workers failed to prevent cross-contamination while using the slicer. A hose in the kitchen did not have back siphonage protection to ensure contaminated water did not flow back into the water supply. Temperature issues were also reported, as Western Sizzlin lost points because baked potatoes and gravy were ten degrees below the minimum temperature required to prevent bacterial growth in hot-holding foods. The inspector reported cream pies in the cooler were twelve degrees above the mandatory maximum cold-holding temperature. The restaurant was also cited for damaged equipment. The inspector reported that they found a cracked measuring cup and a cracked meat storage bin, and they took off points because teflon was peeling off of a pan.

The Korea House restaurant in Huntsville scored an 84. The Madison County Health Department reported finding rodent dropping in two storage areas. The inspector also reported discovering roaches in an unused chest freezer in the kitchen.

The Vulcan Express in Boaz remains on the health department's reinspection schedule after scoring a 69. The gas station food mart scored 79, 80 and 82 during their previous three inspections. This time, the inspector reported problems with controlling pests. Vulcan Express also lost points because the inspector reported that they failed to sanitize utensils used to serve food.

The Wendy's in Boaz scored an 86 during a reinspection, a three point improvement over their last inspection. The score broke the 85-point threshold it takes to get off of the health department's reinspection schedule.

The Wendy's in Albertville rose six points during their reinspection, scoring a 90.
