Restaurant Ratings: Some employees not certified in food safety

It's pretty common to visit a doctor or dentist and assume he or she has gone through the basic requirements to practice in their field. However, that's not always the case for those serving food.

Two restaurants need to get their employees certified in food safety.

When county health workers walked into Our Brothers Place on North Huron and Dunkin' Donuts on West Central Avenue, there was no one punched in who was trained in food safety. Both businesses have 30 days to register for a level one food safety course with the Lucas County Health Department.

But the violations didn't stop there for Our Brothers Place. Some of the 10 violations included no date marking on any food items, the food thermometer used to monitor safe temperatures is broken, and slushy drink machines are being stored on a bare wood surface, which is causing the surface to become wet and moldy.

Back at Dunkin' Donuts, inspectors found six violations, including food being stored on the floor, a hand sink blocked and employee belongings sharing storage space with food, which can lead to contamination.

Fine Things Bistro on South St. Clair racked up four repeat violations out of eight total. A lot of food was stored in the cooler with either no date marks or expired dates. Carpet squares are still being used in the kitchen to cover damaged floor tiles. A room in the basement is housing garbage and empty bottles, which is in need of a clean up to keep pests away. Buildup can be found inside ice machines. Plus, one employee was noticed not wearing gloves while preparing food.

Another case of no date marking was found at Sammy's Brunch on West Central, as well as several boxes of food stored on the floor in the walk-in freezer. Of the six violations, the restaurant's fryers will also need to be stored on something other than cardboard in the kitchen.

At Jimmy John's in Maumee, inspectors caught an employee filling a drink from the soda dispenser, drinking it and preparing sandwiches without changing gloves or washing hands.

Bar 20 and Jo Jo Pizzeria on South Reynolds Road, along with Bob Evans along Glendale all received no violations during their latest health inspections.
