MUNCIE -- Two convenience stores have been cited for critical sanitation violations, including moldy food, by the Delaware County Health Department.
S&G Petroleum, 4849 N. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, was cited for refrigerated, home-style chicken wings covered with a fuzzy, white and blue mold-like substance.
Other violations included maintaining packaged bacon, lunch meat and deli sandwiches in the temperature danger zone, an employee washing a pizza cutting board without using soap, and a dirty restroom that had no hot water at the hand washing sink.
Employees used a three-bay sink to wash their hands. The hand-washing sink in the pizza preparation area was not accessible because it was hooked up to hoses. None of the three employees on duty was able to answer basic food safety questions asked by inspector Sharon Pattee. The employees said only the third shift uses bleach and soap to clean equipment.
