MADISON COUNTY (WAFF) -

The Hong Kong Chinese Restaurant in Huntsville scored an 83 with the Madison County Health Department.

The health inspector reported two critical violations during the inspection. One was for beef on the buffet line that was held at 80 degrees. That is more than 50 degrees below the minimum temperature required to prevent bacterial growth in hot-holding foods. The inspector also reported they saw workers eating on a food prep table.

China 1 in Guntersville scored an 80.

The health inspector reported finding shellfish without tags that show it came from approved waters. The tags are required by all restaurants to track the cause of any food borne illnesses that might be related to shellfish. The inspector also reported cold-holding foods held more than 20 degrees above the required temperature.

The staff at South Sauty Café in Langston scored a 90 during their reinspection, a twelve-point improvement over last time. That means they are no longer on the Marshall County Health Department's reinspection schedule.

The Country Cafe at the Mountain Lakes Resort in Langston is also off of the reinspection schedule. They scored a 65 during their previous inspection, but rose to a 90 during the reinspection.
