Restaurant Report Card for week of April 20

By  | 

(KWTX) The Belton ISD's food service warehouse was inspected earlier this month and while they scored a 100, a note on the bottom of the sheet grabbed our attention.

It says 71 cases of green beans were thrown out due to rust around the rim and foreign particles inside.

In case you're wondering 71 cases equals to 2,700 pounds of veggies.

"The green beans were delivered in that condition, and the damage/contamination was discovered when a food service employee opened one of the cases," school district spokesman Kyle DeBeer said in an email.

"The school nutrition department asked the inspector to verify the condition of the green beans and their destruction as part of the process of seeking a reimbursement. The school nutrition department has received a reimbursement of $1,067.84 from the USDA," he said.

At Taquria El Michoacano on Bagby in Waco, meat was being stored in regular bags, not up to grade so they had to be thrown away.

They also lost points for improperly thawing food, allowing the handle of the ice scoop touching ice and a sanitizer bucket with no sanitizer.

The restaurant scored a 90.

A viewer asked us to look into Wings, Pizza and Things on South West HK Dodgen Loop in Temple.

They passed with a 91.

The inspector saw a bag of raw onions with flour and reside on them from the chicken batter.

The five pound bag was tossed out.

This week's Clean Plate winner is quite “The Catch.”

They are about to celebrate their first anniversary in Waco.

The restaurant offers a wide variety of seafood plates that you can enjoy inside or on the patio.
