Li's Garden


All but one of 27 establishments inspected by Pinal County Environmental Health from Jan. 16-Feb. 15 received excellent marks.

The inspector had a review with the person in charge at Li’s Garden after finding violations in the handling of raw chicken at the restaurant. According to the observations in the report, raw chicken breasts were being processed with bowls of chicken sitting on top of bags of rice, chicken juices and chicken pieces were leaking on the floor where staff was walking through, chicken was stored on a metal counter next to a towel dispenser that had chicken juices on it, chicken wings were in a sink where raw vegetables were being process, and chicken juices were dripping onto raw chicken in bowls sitting on top of plastic containers of uncooked rice. Staff was also told to clean out food debris inside and outside refrigeration equipment. Based on immediate action by the restaurant, it was given a rating of “satisfactory.”
