Fayette County Public Health recently released the following restaurant inspections:

Sept. 27

Kentucky Fried Chicken, 342 W. Court Street. Follow-up inspection. Violations/Comments: The food observed inside of the walk0in coolers were properly date marked and within seven days, therefore in good condition. Several food containers and pop nozzles were found with soil accumulation. This is a repeat violation. It is recommended for employees to change the dish water more frequently, to scrub food containers that are heavily stained and to inspect dishes for cleanliness prior to storing them on the shelves. The food containers were still found stored and stacked away while wet. The food containers observed were free of cracks, smooth and easily cleanable. The overall cleanliness of the facility has not improved. The facility must be cleaned as often as necessary to keep it clean. The facility has an infestation of flies throughout. The presence of insects and pests must be controlled to minimize their presence on the premises by routinely inspecting, cleaning and using pest controlling devices. The dining room is closed because of broken registers. The seat cushions found in the dining area are peeling. All equipment and the physical facility must be maintained in a state of good repair. A box with raw chicken parts was found on the ground near the back door. Again, the facility must be maintained well.
