Food inspectors tag one Maricopa restaurant



One restaurant had a little trouble with rice but all other investigated eateries in Maricopa scored excellent marks in county health inspections Aug. 16-Sept. 15. The inspections included almost all schools in town. Though most did not yet have students back in class at the time of inspection, they were providing meals to school-aged children in the community. At Headquarters, the inspector found day-old rice in a walk-in refrigerator at 48-49 degrees F while the maximum cooling temperature should be 41 degrees. It was discarded.
