Spring, Texas – May 14th, 2017: On Sunday, a local resident posted a photo to a local Facebook group, “ASK SPRING!”, showing a picture of a bug she reportedly found in her drink purchased at a local Schlotzsky’s Deli.
Her encounter goes hand-in-hand with a random inspection completed on May 2nd by the Harris County Department of Public Health. According to county documents the restaurant received the following violation:
§228.174 (e)(1) Outer openings of a food establishment shall be protected against the entry of insects and rodents by: filling or closing holes and other gaps along floors, walls, and ceilings; closed, tight-fitting windows; and solid, self-closing, tight-fitting doors. Pg. 133
Insects were not the only concern! A total of 13 violations were reported during the May inspection including the handling of food with bare hands, chemical spray bottles being stored on the food prep cutting boards and employees not wearing hair nets while serving food.
The Scholtzsky’s in this discussion is located at 1620 Louetta Rd, Spring, TX 77388.
