A Piccadilly restaurant failed its health inspection after the inspector found violations that involved even the ice machine.
A College Park Piccadilly, known for their home-style meals, failed its health inspection with a 68.
Channel 2 spoke with customer Rosita Cooper about the recent score.
“If I had known it was a 68, I wouldn’t have ate there,” Cooper said.
Violations found inside the restaurant included:
- A buildup of slime in the ice machine.
- Observed encrusted, solid material on the slicer
- No consistent date marking procedures
- Unpackaged foods not protected from environmental sources of contamination during preparation
The Chief Operating Officer of Piccadilly restaurants released this statement:
“Piccadilly restaurants takes our commitment to providing quality food in a sanitary environment very seriously. We have taken immediate steps to correct the matter. We deeply regret this incident and want our guests to know that we are dedicated to providing outstanding food in a clean environment at all times and that they should expect nothing less."
The slime found inside the ice-maker is a big problem because it can lead to the spread of things such as salmonella or even E-coli.
