HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - After a busy final week in August, the Kitchen Cops had fewer inspections in the first week of September.

In fact, there were only 3 trouble spots across four counties that sent us scores this week.

The lowest score this week is a 72 at Minnie Lee’s Catfish and Soul Food on Highway 31 in Decatur. It was written up for employees missing food safety training, catfish and hamburger meat at the wrong temperature, chemical cleaners stored on a shelf next to food items, and insects and roaches in the building.
