MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

The Bruegger's Bagel Bakery on Cecil Ashburn Drive in Huntsville scored a 79 with the Madison County Health Department. The inspector reported that ice was touching a dirty surface, and that the inside of the ice machine was dirty.

The inspector also cited Bruegger's because foods stored on the cold holding line and in the display case were above the maximum temperature required to prevent bacterial growth in cold holding foods.

Taqueria Victoria's, which operates at the Limestone Flea Market in Madison, scored a 66 with the Limestone County Health Department. The inspector reported roaches were present.

Taqueria Victoria's also lost points because of raw meat and eggs held nine to 15 degrees above the maximum cold-holding temperature, and because of cheese dip held fifteen degrees below the minimum hot-holding temperature.

The McDonald's in the 1500 block of Highway 72 East in Athens scored an 84. The Limestone County Health Department reported plastic bins were cracked and melted, which can lead to cross contamination. The inspector also noted that the backflow prevention system for the spray arm at a dishwashing sink wasn't working correctly, which can allow to contaminated water to flow back into the water supply.

The Ruby Tuesday in Athens scored an 84. Food temperature issues were reported there, with polish sausage and rice held a few degrees above the required maximum cold-holding temperature. The inspector also reported that the ice maker needed cleaned.

JJ's Grocery in Falkville made it off of the Morgan County Health Department's reinspection schedule by scoring a 93, 10 points better than their last inspection.
