Five restaurants scored low with inspectors in the Kitchen Cops report. Five restaurants scored low with inspectors in the Kitchen Cops report.
MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Another Broken Egg Café on Carl T. Jones Drive in Huntsville scored an 82 with the Madison County Health Department.

The inspector reported food in the cooler drawers below the grill, including raw beef, was between three to fifteen degrees above the maximum temperature required to prevent bacterial growth in cold-holding foods. The inspector also reported chili in the walk-in cooler was a few degrees too warm.

The Quik Mart on Highway 72 East in Tuscumbia scored a 73.

A Colbert County health inspector reported they discovered rodent droppings and signs of nesting. They also reported seeing a worker put on gloves and handle ready to eat food without washing their hands.

The Quik Mart lost points because green beans and corn were held nearly 20 degrees below the minimum temperature required for hot-holding foods, and eggs were sitting out at nearly 20 degrees above the maximum required cold holding temperature.

China King at the Madison Square Mall in Huntsville scored an 82. The inspector reported there was no hot water, but noted that they fixed that problem by the next day.

The Pine Grove Texaco on Wall Triana Highway in Madison scored an 82. The inspector reported beef fajitas, cooked chicken, cooked vegetables, and rice in cold holding were not cold enough, and that the inside of the ice machine was dirty.

The O2 nightclub in Sheffield scored an 84. The inspector reported they found employee food next to customer food in a reach-in cooler.

Cajun Café and Catering in Lacey's Spring scored an 86, a five-point improvement over last time and enough to get off of the Morgan County Health Department's reinspection schedule.
