NORTH ALABAMA (WAFF) -

Edith Ann's Taste of Home Diner in Huntsville scored an 83. The inspector reports finding two critical violations. Keeping bacteria at bay requires keeping cold food at or below 41 degrees. The inspector reports some raw shell eggs were 20 degrees above that. The diner also lost points because they did not have their food safety certification.

B & S Grocery has been on the low performers list before, and they're on it again with this week's worst score, a 72. The Limestone County Health Department reports evidence of a pest presence, that they found droppings in the building. The inspector also reports
the ice maker needed to be cleaned.

An equipment issue is the only critical violation reported at Fuji Japanese Cuisine as they scored an 84. The inspector cited them because the spray nozzle at the dish machine extended below the food rim.

Skate Castle in Decatur scored an 80. The Morgan County Health Department reports a worker was chewing gum while prepping food. A hot-holding food violation costs them points, too, with hot dogs 16 degrees below the mandated minimum 135-degree temperature and pizza 14 degrees off the mark. The inspector also reports there was mold in the ice maker.

The inside of the ice maker at the Boaz Food Mart needed to be cleaned according to the Marshall County Health Department as they scored an 83.

All three of this week's Kitchen Cops High Performers scored a 98. They are the Chik-Fil-A in Owens Cross, the deli at the Publix in Harvest 98, and the Raceway at 2331 Highway 20 in Decatur.
