MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - The Domino's Pizza in Albertville scored a 78 with the Marshall County Health Department. The inspector reported finding workers' drinks in a cooler with food, and Domino's lost points because cleaning products were stored of top of food. The inspector also reported that a hose didn't have a backflow protection device to make sure contaminated water doesn't flow back into the water supply.

In Muscle Shoals, Casa Mexicana scored an 80. The inspector reported rice was sitting out 25 degrees below the temperature required to prevent bacterial growth in hot food. Also, steak and chili relleno in a walk in cooler wasn't cold enough.

The inspector reported cold food in a fridge wasn't cold enough, that eggs were more than thirty degrees above the required temperature, and that the drink nozzles and the ice dispenser needed cleaned.
