Inspections: Burger King, Pizza Factory 11/29/12
Only one new Lee County restaurant inspection is posted this week on http://msdh.ms.gov/.
A few more reports were added/updated since last week’s post (read it) so we’ve also posted all new inspection info since Nov. 16 to catch up.
The state Department of Health regularly inspects restaurants and food facilities.
The facilities are graded from A to C. “A” is the best. “C” is the equivalent of failing, but the inspection isn’t bad enough to merit the closure of the restaurant.
The following Lee County facilities were inspected between Nov. 16 and today.
The facilities are listed as they are in the MSDH system, even if there are typos.
— A’s —-
• Cindy’s Cafe (811 E. Main in Tupelo)
• Burger King (847 Barnes Crossing)
• Northeast Mississippi Bottled Water (279 Coley Road - food warehouse)
• BCP Machines (1708 S. Gloster) – ice machine near Wall’s Bargain Center
• Pizza Factory (Baldwyn)
• Simply Sweet by Margarete (South Green Street in Tupelo)

• The Neon Pig Cafe – 11/20/12 – The report is blank online. MSDH spokeswoman Elizabeth Grey said a computer glitch is causing the problem, so she faxed over the report Monday (see the pictures below). During a follow-up for a failed inspection, she said, the inspectors check to determine compliance only with the failed item.
On the faxed report from the 11/20/12 inspection, inspector Valerie Glass said the Neon Pig is in compliance with: hands clean and properly washed; no bare hand contact with ready to eat foods; adequate handwashing facilities supplied and accessible; and hot and cold water available with adequate pressure.
The note at the bottom of the report: “handwashing sink has been fixed.”
Reminder – the highest possible score on a follow-up is a B, regardless if all items are in compliance.
• Miss. Bottled Water of Tupelo (750 Rex Dr. – food warehouse) – 11/21/12 – all items on the inspection are in compliance, so we’re not sure what happened. The spokeswoman at MSDH is checking to see why the business was given a B instead of an A. Click here to read the full report.
2:30 p.m. Friday update: The MSDH spokeswoman said wholesale bottled water distributors are typically only inspected annually for a permit. According to the environmentalist, the business was given a B because some of the supplies (coffee filters) were not wrapped. There was not a category for this listed on the inspection checklist, so the environmentalist made a note on the report instead.
