Food Inspections

Food Establishments With Violations:RedBlueTotal

Burgerville, Centralia 5/0/5

Many food-worker cards were either expired or unavailable. Please correct within one week. (5 Red)

Produce sanitizing solution is a bit weaker that the required minimum. Please ensure produce is washed/rinsed well in running water, not bucket, until corrected. 

Inspected June 19.

Cowlitz Food and Fuel, Toledo 505

Food temps were too warm in the one refrigerator with sandwiches and other potentially hazardous foods. Please adjust or repair. (5-Red)

Inspected June 17.

Peking House, Centralia 45/0/45

A cup was in the hand wash sink which is not allowed. The hand-wash sink must be kept clear and accessible at all times. This was corrected. This is a repeat violation. (10 Red)

A pan with approximately 20 whole pieces of barbecue pork was cooling in a deep pan (about 6 inches in depth), covered with plastic wrap. Pork was initially observed on the kitchen counter and was then placed into the walk-in. Pork pieces were ultimately transferred to two 2-inch pans to cool uncovered. Neither of the food workers knew uncovered cooling requirements. This is a repeat violation and a violation of the previously required operational plan. (25 Red)

Establishment is not in compliance with the operational plan. (10 Red)

Due to the number of high-risk violations and repeat violations, a meeting between the establishment owners and Lewis County Public Health management is required. 

In addition, a reinspection is required along with the following fees: $110 reinspection fee, $250 for third hand-wash sink violation, $250 for third cooling violation in two years for a total fee of $610 due in 10 days. 

Discussed permit suspension for fourth violations of hand-wash sink or cooling.

Inspected June 20.

Editor’s note: These figures are derived from inspections conducted by the Lewis County Public Health Department’s Food Safety Program.

Red violations are those most likely to cause foodborne illness and must be corrected at the time of inspection. Blue violations relate to overall cleanliness and operational conditions and must be corrected by established deadlines or by the next routine inspection.

Any establishment receiving 40 red points or any red point item repeated within an 18 month period is considered a high risk and must be reinspected. An establishment that receives 75 red points or 100 total points (red and blue) on a routine inspection or 40 red points on a repeat inspection will have their food establishment permit suspended.
