SAN ANTONIO – A South Side bakery cited for multiple violations by health inspectors decided it was better to close the business than make all the necessary corrections.
La Familia Bakery
La Familia Bakery, formerly located in the 2300 block of South Flores Street, scored a 77 in its recent health inspection.
The inspector found the building in such disrepair that he wrote, “The kitchen would not be approved for food preparation if it applied for a license in this state. Must make repairs.
Ceiling panels were hanging or missing, there were holes in the walls, weak spots on the floors, and peeling paint. In addition, several plumbing repairs were necessary.
A new inspection was ordered.
When KSAT Investigates reporter Tim Gerber stopped by this week, he discovered not only was there no kitchen door, but there was no bakery.
A contractor was doing demolition work inside the building.
Reached by phone, the owner of the building said the bakery had closed permanently in early March. He said he was now repairing the building, preparing it for a new undertaking.
Culebra Meat Market #7
Culebra Meat Market #7 in the 3000 block of Blanco Road scored a low 72.
Foods were not properly chilled and refrigeration units and coolers were not cold enough resulting in some foods being rejected.
Employees did not wash their hands. Those who went to the wrong sink because the hand washing sink turned out to be clogged.
The owner indicated that he wanted an upgrade after the inspection, but then called back and accepted the note.
A new inspection was ordered.
Jim is in the 300 block of Hildebrand rolled a 78.
Several small dead rodents were found stuck on a glue trap. Several surfaces and equipment needed to be cleaned and peeling paint needed to be repaired.
A re-inspection was ordered and the business told to “remove all rodent droppings”, show proof of pest control services and perform a “deep clean” of the business at that time. .
Good time at Charlie’s
Good Time Charlie’s located in the 2900 block of Broadway scored an 87 in its February inspection.
The inspector saw “little cockroaches coming out from behind the hood”.
The same hood had to be removed for cleaning. Food debris in coolers and freezers needed to be removed, as did grease buildup at the frying station.
Knives were stored with food scraps and raw meats were improperly stored next to each other.
100-90 = A (very good to fair)
89-80 = B (Acceptable to Marginal)
79 or less = C (marginal to poor)
*Metro Health indicates that scores of 69 or less are failing scores
