(WAFF) -

Food danger zone is a phrase used by health departments to describe when food is at the wrong temperature. That is when bacteria grow most rapidly, doubling in number in as little as 20 minutes.

Legends Steakhouse in Florence is back on the Kitchen Cops low performers list after the Lauderdale County Health Department handed them a 78. The inspection report shows several food items were in the food danger zone.

The inspector reports green beans, broccoli casserole, sweet potatoes, macaroni and cheese, and rice in a walk-in cooler cooling, but not by the health department's time and temperature rules required to prevent food-borne bacterial growth. Legends also lost points for reportedly not marking prime rib, meat loaf, baked and sweet potatoes to indicate when the food was cooked and when it would expire. The inspector also reports a meat slicer and ramekins were dirty.

The staff at Homeside Restaurant on Huntsville Road in Florence kept it clean during their reinspection, scoring a 91, a ten-point-improvement that get them off of the low performers list.

All four of this week's Kitchen Cops high performers scored 99s. They are the Pig Time BBQ food truck out of Huntsville, the JC's BBQ food truck out of Huntsville, Alchemy Lounge at 2211 Seminole Dr. in Huntsville, and Old Towne Beer Exchange at 301 East Holmes Ave. in Huntsville.
