Restaurant tip: Don't scratch your butt and then prepare salad
Posted: August 11th, 2007 - 10:11am by Doug PowellRebecca J. Gray Causey, a regional food safety and defense coordinator for the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control could be my new personal hero.
The Myrtle Beach Sun News reported on restaurant inspection today and cited Causey as doing a food inspection, when the salad bar worker stopped chopping lettuce, commenced scratching his bottom and then returned to chopping lettuce.
Causey found the eatery's manager and told him,
"Let's have a talk with Stinky Hands. He needs to know that if he has an itchy butt, he doesn't scratch it on the [salad bar] line."
Causey, shut down the salad bar 30 minutes before the eatery's opening time. All the food on the bar had to be thrown away.
On another occasion, Causey saw Stinky Hands' brother popping pimples on his chest while he was grilling meat.
