Phoenix Restaurant Inspection Failures - Beware!

Restaurants With Poor Inspection Results in January 2013

The worst offender in January had several violations noted by the inspector relative to food being left out or stored at an inappropriate temperature for more than four hours.

This list represents those restaurants (not schools, caterers, corporate cafeterias, bakeries or other food processing businesses) that had five or more Risk Factor violations -- those that are considered a risk for foodborne illness -- during their last inspection. A restaurant that had that many Risk Factors noted would be one that I'd avoid, at least until they had subsequent inspections showing more understanding of safe food preparation standards and concern for their patrons.

Here is the list of those restaurants in Maricopa County which had five or more Risk Factor Violations, with the worst at the top of the list. After you peruse the worst, please take a look at the many Phoenix area restaurants that achieved perfect inspections during the month of January 2013. Those are arranged by zip code, for your convenience. They deserve our support and our business.
