MUNCIE -- Delaware Country Club, Wes-Del High School, Captain D's, Carino's and Eva's Pancake House were cited for hand washing or glove violations during recent sanitation inspections by the Delaware County Health Department.
At the country club, an inspector saw employees preparing and serving lettuce, buns, deli sandwiches, potato chips and other food with their bare hands.
Also, at the snack shack, there was no hot water at the hand sink or in the restrooms, and the spray bottles used for cleaning counters, equipment and utensils contained excessively strong bleach water that bleached out the test strips.
At Eva's, 1617 N. Wheeling Ave., a grill cook changed his gloves while preparing food, including cracking raw shell eggs, without washing his hands.
That could result in egg goo and sweat from the cook's hands or gloves contaminating food or equipment, inspector Sharon Pattee told The Star Press. A disease could be transmitted through sweat or raw eggs.
The inspector also saw two Eva's employees buttering toast with their bare hands.
At Captain D's, 1010 W. McGalliard Road, use of the hand sink was blocked by green wash and red sanitation buckets
