Six Critical Food Safety Violations At Log Cabin Restaurant
LABELLE, FL. -- The new owners of LaBelle's Log Cabin Bar-B-Q found the restaurant had six critical food safety violation in it's most recent inspection by a state restaurant inspector. Although the Hendry county eatery met inspection standards and can remain open, the owners were notified of items including soiled gaskets and no employee food training was provided.
The department cites violations of Florida's sanitation and safety laws, which are based on the standards of U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Food Code. In general, critical violations are those that, if not corrected, are more likely to contribute directly to food contamination, illness or environmental damage.
Although the industry-standard term "critical" is used, varying degrees of severity and potential risk to the public require inspectors to assess each situation in determining the appropriate action. In addition, while an establishment may have multiple violations, the inspectors' training and judgment formulate the overall result of the inspection to ensure the public health and safety.
