Kitchen Cops: Fast food restaurant earns 79

(WAFF) -

The Wendy's in Albertville reportedly had issues with both hot and cold food during their inspection as the Marshall County Health Department handed the fast food restaurant a 79. Food in the "food danger zone" is food at the wrong temperature. That allows bacteria to grow, which can potentially lead to a food borne illness. The inspector reports there was some cold-holding food that was too warm, and some hot-holding food that wasn't hot enough.

The minimum temperature required by the health department for hot food is 135 degrees. The inspector reports a hamburger fell 24 degrees short, chicken nuggets were 17 degrees off, and chili was 15 degrees below the mark. The maximum cold-holding temperature is 41 degrees. Swiss cheese reportedly was 13 degrees over that.

A food temperature violation is also on the inspection report for the Foodland deli in Killen, which scored an 82. The Lauderdale County Department reports fried chicken at 16 degrees under the required hot-holding temperature.
