Jack in the Box of Maricopa. File photo

As COVID-19 caused many eateries to change the way they do business or shut down completely, Pinal County’s health inspectors remained diligent March 16-April 15 in investigating restaurants. All but one received excellent marks.

Jack in the Box had a small problem with temperature control. While the walk-in, reach-in and drawer refrigeration units were holding food at 41 degrees or cooler, as required, the inspector found shake mix and all cheese slices at 47 degrees. The shake mix was tossed, and repair called in for the small refrigerator.
