"food poisoning" foodpoisoningStir Fry 88, a small Chinese food establishment in The Lakes Mall in Muskegon County, Tennessee had its food service license revoked last week by Muskegon County’s three-person hearing board.  The restaurant had a history of repeat violations related to sanitation, cleanliness, and food handling procedures.  The restaurant lacked any institutional control, for which it was rewarded with closure, hopefully on a permanent basis.

Among the specific violationsthat health inspectors repeatedly found throughout the enforcement process dating back to 2007 were temperature abuses — not keeping cold items cold enough or not getting hot items hot enough — not properly sanitizing dishes, failure to “exert active managerial control” of its food safety management system, failure to correct critical violations and failure to submit a risk control plan. 

Good riddance.
