ALABAMA (WAFF) -

The Hardee's in Albertville scored a 70. The inspector reports chicken fingers were 21 degrees below the 135-degree temperature required to prevent bacterial growth in hot-holding food.

The fast food restaurant also lost points or reportedly using broken food contact equipment, including a fry basket, and fry scoop and a plastic pan.

The Jack's in Sheffield scored an 80. Grilled chicken reportedly was 12 to 17 degrees below the mandated minimum hot-holding temperature, and food in a cooler was too warm by five to 16 degrees.

Martin's Market, aka the Chevron on Highway 69 in Arab, scored a 77. The inspector reports finding fried chicken and cheese stored in a cooler without marks to indicate when the food would expire, and that pizza was 15 degrees below the required temperature.

Food at 15 degrees on the wrong side of thermometer was also reported at Town Creek Fillin' Station in Guntersville, as they scored a 77. In this case, hamburgers and hot dogs weren't hot enough. Plus, the inside of the ice maker needed to be cleaned.

Granny's Corner in Arab scored an 83. Food temperature issues were reported  by the health department with batter 37 degrees above the 41-degree required temperature for cold-holding food, and potato salad and chicken salad too warm by 13 and 12 degrees respectively.
