In county food inspections Feb. 16-March 15, Dickey’s Barbecue Pit had an issue with its “hot-holding.” All hot foods were above the required minimum of 135 degrees F except the brisket and ribs, which were 131 degrees. Both were discarded.

The deli at Fry’s Marketplace was cited for hot-holding and cold-hold violations. Warm chicken was found to be at 119 degrees instead of 135, which was blamed on a door being left ajar. Seafood salad and tuna salad were found to be at 43 degrees instead of the required cold-holding maximum of 41. Maintenance was called to fix the problem.
