NEVADA: Teriyaki restaurant
Posted: December 22nd, 2011 - 8:40pm
Las Vegas, NV -- Restaurant inspectors find a long list of violations inside a valley restaurant forcing it to close its doors. Contact 13's Tricia Kean pays a visit to the restaurant for our Dirty Dining report.
Expired milk, a baby bouncer found in the employee restroom and dirty conditions. Those are just some of the reasons that Teriyaki Restaurant was shut down by the Southern Nevada Health District. They slapped the restaurant on East Flamingo with a total of 53 demerits.
Anything over 40 demerits is an automatic closure.
Violations included foods like egg rolls and chicken stored improperly; open containers in the refrigerator; green beans stored in grocery bag; and a dirty soda nozzle that was covered in "mold-like growth."
In addition, a person in charge did not know proper cleaning procedures; a dirty microwave and shelves were covered in food debris; the floors were dirty; there were missing ceiling tiles; a floor sink was dirty; and a faucet was leaking on another sink.
Contact 13 stopped by the restaurant and was told the owner was out of town. We left our contact information but never heard back from anyone.
The Southern Nevada Health District tells us Teriyaki has been reinspected and is now operating with a 10 demerit A grade.
