7 Star Chinese Restaurant recently lost its food service permit after receiving three failing scores this year out of the last four examinations.
According to the Oct. 7 food inspection report, the facility was asked “to voluntarily close until all violations are corrected.” The person in charge, however, did not agree to this request until after the permit was removed from the eatery, the report showed. 7 Star later corrected the infractions and received a 90 (A). Its permit was re-instated, according to the Oct. 13 addendum.
Before its sufficient follow-up, the restaurant’s latest two scores were unsatisfactory, a 69 (U) on Oct. 4 and a 56 (U) on Oct. 7.
A long list of violations from the latest two reports include:
Oct. 4 report: 69 (U)
Broken bowls and knives used, rat traps stored by clean pans, dirty walls and floors, no sanitizer bucket on site and no designated area for washing vegetables.
Oct. 7 report: 56 (U)
Heavy buildup dripping from the vent grills, encrusted scoops stored in dry goods, such as rice and flour, dusty walls, flour and ceiling tiles; broken freezer door lid; current inspection report not posted; and no certified food safety manager.
On the follow-up Oct. 12 report, 7 Star was given 30 days to sign up for the CFSM course, and 90 days to have completed the course and to have posted the report.
The manager declined comment on the reports.
Here are other recent inspection scores from restaurants across the area.
