Golden Corral, Texoma Urban Air get C health grades; other food safety reports – Herald Democrat

By Jerrie Whiteley Herald Democrat

Local eateries are doing a good job of following the rules for cleanliness and food preparation set out by the state. The most recent round of inspections by the Grayson County Health Department saw no establishment make anything below a “C” grade.

Restaurants are given an “A,” “B,” “C” or “F” score. An “A” means sanitarians reported no or only a few minor violations. Those with a “B” were found to have several minor violations but nothing major. Restaurants with a “C” might have a major violation or repeat offenses, but in the inspectors’ opinions, nothing bad enough to warrant an “F.”

An “A” means sanitarians reported 10 or fewer demerits. Those with a “B” received 11-20 demerits. Restaurants with a “C” had 21-30 demerits and restaurants with “F” ratings received more than 30 demerits.

However, two restaurants did make the lowest passing grade: Golden Corral in Sherman and Texoma Urban Air in Denison.

At Golden Corral, the inspector found several foods uncovered in refrigerators and freezers and found that the labels on the cold hold foods on the salad bar were incorrectly labeled.

At Texoma Urban Air, the inspector found that there was no food manager on duty and that the food handler’s certificates for employees were not displayed. The inspector also found several foods that were being kept at improper temperatures and no dates on several pre-packaged foods.
