Inspections: Restaurant gets tips on cooling down fries

by -

Only one of 22 eateries inspected by Pinal County health personnel did not receive a perfect score.

WingStop received a ding over batches of fries that did not cool fast enough after being cooked. According to code, cooked food should be cooled from 135 degrees F to 70 degrees within two hours. Fries inspected were no cooler than 78 degrees after two hours. Affected batches of fries were discarded and the inspector reviewed the cooling process with staff.
