By Jerrie Whiteley Democrat Herald
Record keeping contributed to a failing grade for King Buffet, 2916 US 75 North, in Sherman, during an inspection by the Grayson County Health Department. One restaurant received a ‘C’ and other inspected restaurants received ‘A’ and ‘B’ grades.
GC Sanitary regularly inspects all businesses that serve food to the public. These establishments receive an “A”, “B”, “C” or “F” grade. An “A” means remediation officials reported no violations or only a few minor violations. Those with a “B” were found to have several minor violations but nothing major. Restaurants with a “C” may have a major infraction or repeat offenses, but in the opinion of inspectors, nothing serious enough to warrant an “F.”
An “A” means sanitation technicians reported 10 or fewer demerits. Those with a “B” received 11 to 20 demerit points. Restaurants with a “C” had between 21 and 30 demerit points and restaurants with an “F” received more than 30 demerit points.
King Buffet’s inspection report said the restaurant had already been told that its sushi bar records had to be kept in English so inspectors could tell if items were kept at the correct temperature for the correct times to be stored. consumed safely. The inspection report indicated that these files were not in English at the time of the most recent inspection.
Additionally, the restaurant has been cited for improperly storing food in coolers and for cleanliness issues throughout the restaurant.
Southern Maid Donuts, 1725 E. Lamar, in Sherman, was the only restaurant in this latest round of inspections to earn a “C” on its inspection.
Violations listed in the inspection report, including keeping pigs in a blanket at the wrong temperature and not meeting the date of preparation of these feeds.
